Press Conference with the Treasurer and Minister for Energy and the Environment - 25 September 2017

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

Well, we have got an enormous amount down and I am very proud of that and pleased with that. There is a lot more to do.
You know I said when I became Prime Minister that the goal was to provide economic leadership and over the last two years we have seen half a million new jobs created - 80 per cent of them full time.
We have seen very big reforms and we got them through the Senate in circumstances where people said it couldn’t be done.
I mean, look at what we have done with schools funding. Schools funding has been a mess – and when I say a mess it has been inconsistent forever at the federal level. Now for the first time we have national, consistent, transparent, needs-based funding right across the nation. That is a massive reform.

Interview with Kieran Gilbert, SKY AM Agenda

I can point to real improvements that have changed Australian lives for the better.
Let’s talk about 500,000 jobs created in the last two years. That’s 325,000 of them in the last year. 80 per cent of those full-time.
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.
