NOTHING FROM BILL SHORTEN FOR AUSTRALIA’S DEFENCE INDUSTRY

The first priority of a government is the safety and security of its people.

For Bill Shorten, it did not rate a mention.

Bill Shorten was part of a Labor Government that was responsible for the massive destruction of manufacturing jobs causing the Valley of Death.

To give confidence to our defence industry, Bill Shorten must commit Labor to the Turnbull Government’s $200 billion investment to boost our military capability while employing thousands of Australians for decades.
