Transcript - 5AA Radio Interview with Leon Byner - Wednesday, 22 April 2015

E&OE………………………………………………………………………………………….LEON BYNER: But in the meantime, the stoush between the State and Federal Governments on cuts has ascended to a level that we've rarely seen before. It's become quite personal as the Local Government Association, State and Federal Government engage in a battle for credibility. Now, the money being spent on flyers and advertising on TV, radio, press and so on, is in the millions. I see this fight as cooking spinach, boiling down to very little and he... »

Transcript - Press Conference, Commonwealth Parliamentary Office, Adelaide - Friday, 17 April 2015

E&OE………………………………………………………………………………………….JAMIE BRIGGS: The Government is announcing that we are selling through a public tender the Inverbrackie site. It was a site that was a detention facility for three years. It was a detention facility because the former government lost control of Australia's borders and were desperate to find additional places for people to be assessed under the immigration law.

Media Release - SA Auditor-General to investigate Labor’s campaign of lies - Tuesday, 7 April 2015

I welcome the South Australian Auditor-General’s announcement that he will investigate Premier Weatherill’s deceitful $1.1 million taxpayer funded advertising campaign blaming the Federal Government for State Labor’s cuts to pensioner concessions on council rates.
