Addressing the Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet Staff

4 NOVEMBER 2016

I was delighted to address the staff working in PM&C to thank them for all their hard work.

It has been a busy year and I wanted to personally thank the staff for their dedication, advice and hard work over the past 12 months.

I also emphasised the importance of good cabinet processes to support government decision making and the importance of government policies on regulatory reform to improve productivity. Providing frank and fearless advice on policy measures is a critical role for the Australian Public Service and I encouraged PM&C officers to think creatively, provide ideas and give clear advice to the Government.
