45th Parliament sits for first time today: a message from Malcolm Turnbull

"Today, the 45th Parliament sits for the first time. This will be a term of delivery for the Australian people.

"This week, the Government will introduce a large number of bills into the Parliament that deliver on our plan for a stronger economy.

"The Australian Building and Construction Commission and Registered Organisations legislation will address union thuggery and lawlessness. And we will be asking the Parliament to expedite amendments to the Fair Work Act to prevent the militant union takeover of Victoria's Country Fire Authority.

"Above all, this Parliament faces the massive moral challenge of Budget repair.

"How long are we prepared as a nation, to load more and more debt onto the shoulders of our children and grandchildren?

"That's why we will also introduce into the Parliament this week an Omnibus Savings Bill with more than $6 billion in savings measures all of which the Labor Party committed to supporting during the election campaign.

"The Coalition is determined to deliver on the strong economic plan we took to the election and which the Australian people have endorsed."
