Christian speaks on the Healthy Welfare Card during Question Time on 18 October 2015.
It is a great pleasure to be invited to deliver the 2015 Muresk Lecture. I would like to acknowledge Mr Neil McAullay, Acting Managing Director of the CY O’Connor Institute; Professor Christine Storer, Head of the School of Agribusiness at the CY O’Connor Institute; Mr Tim Wess, Dean of Science from Charles Sturt University; Deborah Moodey, traditional owner; and Brianna and Rachel, representatives of the Muresk Student Association.

My background was as a Crown prosecutor and legal academic in criminal law – in some ways a good preparation for politics. So I am always assessing whether a proposition can be accepted beyond Reasonable Doubt.
