Federal Parliament Resumes, please help support WEL's work

This week Federal Parliament returns after a 116 day hiatus. With the Coalition on 76 seats in the House of Representatives, and an uncertain Senate, moving from 8 crossbench senators to 11, our 45th Parliament is set to be a very interesting stage indeed.
