Statement from Dan Tehan

It is a great honour to be re-appointed Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC by the Prime Minister, the Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP.

It is also a great honour to be appointed the Minister for Defence Personnel and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Cyber Security.

I am humbled by these appointments, but excited to be asked again to serve in Prime Minister Turnbull’s Ministry.

As Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC, it is vital that we never forget the service and sacrifice of the men and women who served our country.

As Minister for Defence Personnel, I look forward to ensuring the men and women of our defence forces have the support they need in fulfilling their role.

As Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Cyber Security, I look forward to working with the Prime Minister to implement Australia’s Cyber Security Strategy released by the Government in April.

I would once again like to thank the people of Wannon as without their support it would not be possible to serve as a Minister.

I look forward to continuing to deliver positive outcomes for my electorate and ensuring their views are strongly represented in the Australian Parliament.

I also look forward to supporting the Turnbull Government implement its important agenda for this term of Parliament.
