« Cheaper insurance means for hundreds of thousands of Australians Peace of mind across Northern Australia knowing that their livelihoods are protected, « said Frydenberg. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the plan shows that Northern Australian ministers and their constituents are facing the scarcity of insurance eligibility and rising Costs have been heard.

“We believe in the future of Northern Australia. This means we need to take further action to make Australians more resilient to living and working in Northern Australia, « said the Prime Minister.

 » I have listened to our local MPs and Senators, sat down with residents, and Discussed the issue. Homeowners and businesses have faced crippling insurance costs and in some cases are unable to get insurance at all. It’s not okay and we’re going to change that.
