From Katie

Since becoming Prime Minister I have travelled to drought-affected communities, talking to farmers and engaging with communities. Our farmers and graziers are the best in the world. They are doing it tough, and we are on their side. That's why we passed the Future Drought Fund through the House last night, which will provide $5 billion in permanent funding support for drought resilience projects all around Australia.

Amazing to meet Scarlett and Anna with Katie Allen MP this morning to announce our Government will expand the PBS listing of the medicine Kalydeco for infants, helping children living with Cystic Fibrosis. It will save families up to $300,000 a year, taking it down to as little as $6.50 a script. Improving the lives of children like Scarlett and Anna are the inspiring reason we do our jobs as parliamentarians.
