The Morrison Government’s new political donation laws that ban foreign interference in Australian elections are now in place. The new laws mandate that political campaigning targeting Australians cannot be paid for by foreign donors, including election advertising, campaign phone calls and how-to-vote cards.
Special Minister of State Alex Hawke said these strong new laws passed by the Morrison Government were necessary to support the integrity of Australia's electoral system, and Australia's sovereignty.

More Mitchell residents are visiting their doctor without having to pay a cent, with new data showing a record GP bulk billing rate for the September quarter.

Member for Mitchell, the Hon. Alex Hawke MP said the data for the first quarter of the 2018-19 financial year has the GP bulk billing rate at a record 91.8%.

“This is 0.6 per cent higher than the same period last year and 2.4 per cent higher than the same period under Labor”, Alex Hawke said.

Home owners and property renters in the Mitchell electorate will be hit hard by Labor’s ill-conceived property tax.

“In Mitchell there are more than 13 000 people who negative gear their property and stand to lose if Labor has its way,” Mitchell MP Alex Hawke said.

“Labor’s property tax will not only punish those who negative gear, but every Australian with equity in their home will be hurt by Labor’s policy.

“Labor’s property tax is a lose-lose policy - if you own your own home it will be worth less, and if you rent your home it will cost you more.”

One hundred years ago on 11 November 1918 at 11am, guns fell silent on the Western Front. After more than four years, the First World War was finally over.

Today we know 11 November as Remembrance Day, but its origins started 100 years ago when the Armistice ending the fighting during the First World War was signed.

This year we commemorate the Centenary of Armistice.
