Appointment as Assistant Minister for Employment

I welcome the announcement by Prime Minister elect Tony Abbott of my appointment as the Federal Assistant Minister for Employment.

It will be a privilege to work in a new Coalition Government which is committed to restoring confidence and getting Australia back on track.

There are many challenges in the Employment portfolio with unemployment rising and many Australians underemployed or working less hours.

Through sensible economic management the Coalition is committed to building a stronger economy and creating more job opportunities.

I understand the important role of government in delivering programs that will assist people to get into work.

So many of the social problems which exist today are directly connected to the lack of employment opportunities.

I look forward to consulting with stakeholders and implementing polices which will give more Australians the opportunity to work.

I also welcome my appointment as The Deputy Leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives.
