WA Premier Colin Barnett on reducing red tape in his second term

WA Premier Colin Barnett

In our sit-down with Western Australia’s Premier Colin Barnett at Parliament House, there is one point the Premier really wants to make: “What hasn’t been writtenis the extent in which this Government has had strong agendas on social, environment, education and health which often get overlooked,” said Mr. Barnett.

“This is not like any previous Liberal Government. We have a strong enviromental and social agenda.

I challenge you to find a Labor Government that has had such a strong agenda.”
