DELIVERING OUR PLAN

 A STRONGER ECONOMY 

  • The Government is delivering a Budget surplus for the first time in more than a decade.
  • We are building a stronger economy by backing small business, lowering taxes to reward hard work, boosting exports and building infrastructure.

 MORE JOBS 

  • The Liberals’ 2013 pledge for 1 million jobs in five years was delivered ahead of schedule.
  • Last financial year, for the first time, over 100,000 young Australians found a job.
  • With a stronger economy, our commitment is for 1.25 million more jobs in five years.

 LOWER TAXES 

  • Our plan rewards and encourages hard work and helps families to get ahead.
  • From 1 July, over 10 million workers will get tax benefits of up to $1,080. After five years, 94% of taxpayers will pay a top rate of 30% or less.
  • We’re also providing an Energy Assistance Payment for over 5 million Australians.

 SMALL BUSINESS & STRONGER COMMUNITIES

  • Backing Wentworth's small businesses to support local jobs and opportunities.
  • Supporting local community groups, including $2 million to secure the future of the Bronte Surf Life Saving Club.
  • Our tax relief benefits 3.4 million businesses employing over 7 million Australians. This will help small businesses get ahead and create jobs.
  • We’re extending the Instant Asset Write-Off (already accessed by over 350,000 small businesses). This helps small businesses invest in the machinery and equipment they need to grow.

 BETTER ROADS AND RAIL  

  • To ease congestion in cities and unlock the potential of our regions, we are investing a record $100 billion in infrastructure over a decade.
  • This includes major highway upgrades, congestion busting roads, commuter car parking, better local roads, urban rail, inland rail and faster rail between regional centres and major cities.

 A SECURE AUSTRALIA 

  • We’re building our defence capability with new ships, systems, aircraft, weapons and vehicles.
  • We’ve fixed Labor’s border security failure.
  • We have cancelled the visas of 4,200 serious criminals – including murderers, rapists, child sex offenders, armed robbers and drug dealers.

 BETTER SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS 

  • Funding increases for all 16 government schools in Wentworth over the next decade.
  • Our funding agreements guarantee an extra $31 billion for hospitals over five years and an extra $37 billion for schools over the decade.
  • Medicare funding is guaranteed and the GP bulk billing rate is 86% (higher than under Labor).
  • Over 2,000 new life-changing medicines have been listed on the PBS, making them affordable.

 OUR ENVIRONMENT 

  • Protecting and enhancing our local environment and quality of life including South Head.
  • We are building Snowy 2.0 and backing Tasmania’s Battery of the Nation. These projects will help deliver reliable, renewable power to millions of homes and thousands of jobs.
