Joyce welcomes renewed efforts to

Close the Gap

 

12 February, 2014

 

Federal Member for New England Barnaby Joyce said the review today of work towards Closing the Gap showed the challenge of turning good intentions into better outcomes.

 

“For the gap to close we must get kids to school, adults to work and the ordinary law of the land observed,” Mr Joyce said.

 

“We should want nothing less for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people than we want for every Australian.”
