Gillard keeps Albanese

As the dust settles on the Federal Government’s recent leadership spill, there’s been a very warm response across the transport industry at the news that Prime Minister Gillard has kept Anthony Albanese in his job as Minister for Infrastructure and Transport.

Early last week, our National President, John Beer, wrote to the Prime Minister, stressing the importance of making sure reforms such as the establishment of the national regulator wouldn’t be delayed or disrupted by a change of Minister. We hear that several major industry groups took similar action.
