Articles and written statements by Senator Anning on a variety of topics.
Fraser Anning’s Conservative National Party’s Veterans policy which seeks to ensure servicemen and women receive the support and acknowledgement at all stages of their service they deserve. It has been described as “leaps and bounds ahead of existing policies” by a number of Veterans.

Fraser Anning Moves to Abolish Age Pension Means Test
Senator Anning has moved to abolish the means test for the Age Pension.
