Abbott pledges 40m to breast cancer fight
Prime Minister Tony Abbott today pledged his 40m dollar investment in the fight against breast cancer – but said his government’s funding would only be granted if it passed the Women’s Tax Cut Bill next week.
Mr Abbott pledged the government would spend around $40m in the $30 million a year in 2015-16 on breast cancer screening grants, treatment and research.
However, on Monday, it emerged more than $1.1m will go towards breast cancer research, of which around 10 per cent of the bill will go to Queensland.
The $1.1m figure is the second largest total grant to date in the $25m women-focused funding package.
The package was first announced in December 2015.
Mr Abbott is one of 18 government ministers who will be attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, next month where leaders hope to lay the gr양산출장마사지oundwork for a landmark agreement on a global trade agreement.
The bill before Parliament must now pass both houses of Parliament, where it is expected to pass easily.
In a statement, Mr Abbott said the government was committed to “putting women’s rights first”.
“The Women’s Tax Cut Bill will invest in our key areas of focus: supporting small and medium-sized businesses, promoting the recovery of national parks and monuments, tackling climate change and protecting Australia’s coastlines,” he said.
“And for this reason, we’re determined to achieve women’s full participation in the workforce from the workplace.”
Mr Abbott did not identify any of the grants to which the $1.1m funding would go, but a woman in the Senate’s environment committee said at last week’s inquiry into the bill that around 10 per cent was from private donations.
“While it may not be appropriate for anyone to donate to the fund directly to this committee, there is certainly 에비앙 카지노no one’s absolute, sole right to give money,” Environment spokesman Nick Minchin said.
“It’s my hope that this government will work with us to put funding for women’s health and the rights to equal pay, safe workplace and equal rights into place.”
