    "My Government took an ambitious and wide-ranging legislative agenda to the last election, and we look forward to delivering it.

     

    "We have a lot of work to do and the 18 weeks allocated this year, which is more than what occurred in 2017, reflects that.

     

    "We will undertake reform to disrupt and eliminate bikie networks and make our communities safer.

     

    "My team and I are looking forward to delivering not only our commitments, but continuing to provide the stable, responsible government Western Australians expect and deserve."
