Television interview with Sonia Kruger and David Campbell - TODAY Extra, Nine Network - Tuesday, 19 September 2017

Now for the first time we have national, consistent, transparent, needs-based funding right across the nation. That is a massive reform.

What we promised, jobs and growth – that was our slogan in the election campaign – occasionally satirised, by you too I imagine, but it is more than a slogan, it is an outcome.
