PRIME Minister Julia Gillard will host the Government's 42nd Community Cabinet meeting in Rockhampton on July 16.

This meeting will be the ninth Community Cabinet to be held in Queensland, and will provide a unique opportunity for members of the community to meet federal government ministers face-to-face.

The Prime Minister and Member for Capricornia Kirsten Livermore today encouraged local residents to register to attend the meeting, which will be held at the North Rockhampton State High School.

"Everyone is welcome to attend the Rockhampton Community Cabinet, and if you are interested in coming along make sure you register as early as possible. There are opportunities to meet ministers face-to-face or ask a question at the forum," said Ms Livermore.

A number of ministers will attend the meeting to answer questions on topics such as the Government's plan to create and support Australian jobs, the National Plan for School Improvement, and the rollout of the National Broadband Network.

So far, more than 15,500 people have attended Community Cabinet meetings across Australia. There have been over 2,000 face-to-face meetings with ministers.

Registrations open from July 1 to July 5, but may close earlier if capacity is reached.

If people want to attend the public forum only, they must register online at www.pm.gov.au or by calling 1800 088 323. To request a face-to-face meeting with a minister please call 1800 088 323.
