Opposition leader Bill Shorten met businesses and residents in Kwinana on Friday as part of his visit to Perth.

Mr Shorten told the Telegraph he was in Perth to visit a number of places, including Austal to have a look at the shipyards and discuss Labor’s plans to put more naval shipbuilding jobs into Kwinana.

Mr Shorten was also part of a dementia round table held in Perth.

“The visit to Kwinana was a great opportunity to meet with (member for Brand) Madeleine (King) and meet a few locals,” he said.

Impressed with the Kwinana Industrial Area, Mr Shorten said it could be an “industrial metropolis” with a lot more manufacturing.

“You need a Government in Canberra who is going to back the strip,” he said.

“It’s all about the jobs for me — blue-collar engineering jobs.”
