Today's Property Industry Confidence Survey shows that confidence is increasing under a strong, stable majority Liberal Government and when confidence is up, more jobs will follow.
The Liberal Government's number one priority is jobs. That's why we moved quickly and decisively to remove water and sewerage headworks charges for two years.
The Liberal Government is committed to cutting waste and spending more on frontline services, that's why we're cutting $2 million from the amount spent on government boards and committees.
We estimate that under Labor and the Greens there were more than 200 boards with more than 1,600 board members. Labor and the Greens spent millions of dollars on their network of boards and committees. We simply won't put up with that.
Tomorrow, each Minister will receive a letter from me instructing them to review every single one of their boards and committees. Each board and committee will be asked to find savings. If there are boards and committees that aren't needed, they will be scrapped and the money saved will be spent on frontline services, like teachers, nurses and police.
The Liberal Government has the right priorities and we will get on with the job of delivering our plan.
