Memories of Menzies and Calwell - in conversation

in News

It was my absolute privilege to host the inaugural 'Memories of Menzies and Calwell' event alongside my parliamentary colleagues John Alexander MP and Dr Mike Freelander MP in Parliament. 

Firstly, a very special thank you to Heather Henderson (nee Menzies) and Dr Mary Elizabeth Calwell for sharing the wonderful memories of their fathers from very personal perspectives in a fascinating discussion moderated by Michelle Grattan, The Conversation.

This function was organised by the Menzies Calwell group, of which I am a member. The group is made up of MPs from both sides of the political aisle who are trying to inject a degree of bipartisanship into politics and improve the standard of debate in the chamber and in public life.

Thank you also to the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House for sponsoring this event
