I launched Paul Ritchie's book Faith, Love and Australia: The Conservative Case for Same-Sex Marriage in Sydney on 21 July. I was joined at the launch by my parliamentary colleagues, Trent Zimmerman MP, Tim Wilson MP and Senator Dean Smith.

2016 Archibald Prize

The Archibald Prize is one of Australia's leading portrait prizes. The Prize is awarded annually, with the winning entry selected by the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW. I was delighted for Camillo De Luca that his portrait of me was selected as one of 51 finalists in the 2016 Prize. Here I am pictured during a visit to the Art Gallery of NSW with the Gallery's chair, David Gonksi AC.

Appointment as Minister for the Environment and Energy

It was an honour and a privilege to be sworn in as Minister for the Environment and Energy in the Turnbull Ministry on 19 July. I am looking forward to continuing the great work of Greg Hunt who has served the portfolio so well in government and opposition for almost a decade. I also want to congratulate Senator Matt Canavan who takes on the portfolio of Resources and Northern Australia. It was great to work with Senator Canavan on developing northern Australia, which included the implementation of the $5 billion Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility. I’m looking forward to working with key stakeholders to ensure our environment is protected and enhanced. As we transition to a lower emissions economy, I’m also focused on ensuring Australia has a stable and secure energy supply, capitalising on new energy efficient technologies.
