Federal Leaders Rally Troops

Sunday, April 14th, 2019

The prime minister has told Liberal Party faithful the federal government is reducing emissions, and dealing with climate change.

Scott Morrison addressed a group of supporters while campaigning in Brisbane today.

He spoke about the Coalition’s economic success and job creation over the past five-and-a-half years.

Mr Morrison also told the crowd, the government is taking care of the environment.

“We were more than 700 million tonnes behind the game when it came to meeting our Kyoto targets, and in the space of that last five-and-a-half years we have turned that around and we will now beat those Kyoto 2020 targets by 369 million tonnes,” he said.

Meantime, the federal opposition says it would subsidise training programs for carers, if it wins next month’s election.

Labor leader Bill Shorten made the announcement while addressing party faithful in Sydney today.

Mr Shorten also used the opportunity to tell supporters he is leading a strong, united party.

“The next generation deserves better than the last six years, and after six years of cuts, of chaos, of division – friends, it is time for change,” says Mr Shorten.

The opposition leader has also claimed he would restore almost $3 billion in public hospital funding.

The government argues Labor is misleading voters, claiming it has already been increasing health funding.
