There’s always a good feeling when the Labor family gets together. I’ve been going to conference for years now and it’s still exciting to catch up with old friends, listen to the debates rage and watch as we set a direction for the country.
The decisions made at this year’s conference are historic, they’ll change Australia for the better.
We endorsed the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Like Medicare and compulsory superannuation, it’s a defining Labor reform. The Scheme will ensure that Australians with disabilities and their carers finally receive the support they’ve been denied for too long.
The Party platform now supports marriage equality. We agreed there will be a conscience vote so that honestly held values and beliefs on both sides of this debate can be expressed.
We agreed to sell uranium to India – the world’s largest democracy and a great economic power. This will broaden our markets and create jobs for Australians. We’ll ensure we do this safely and meet all our treaty obligations to prevent proliferation.
The debate about asylum seekers rages across our country, as well as in our Party. Conference endorsed a policy that is firm but fair – an increased intake of refugees on humanitarian grounds as part of a regional solution involving off-shore processing.
Under the theme of Jobs, Growth and Fairness we renewed our commitment to keeping the economy and budget strong, implementing the National Health Agreement and endorsed record funding for schools with a national curriculum.
And, of course, we made some big decisions about party reform – making changes to give you a bigger say in the Party.
Nobody holds a National Conference like the ALP – the other political parties don’t even come close. With social media and online engagement we were able to take it to the next level, with a record 5,000 people participating in the live web chat during the conference.
On a personal note, I was honoured on behalf of the ALP to present a condolence book to young members of our sister party in Norway following the tragedy earlier this year.
This week I hope that all Party members are feeling a new energy and commitment to our movement.
