BUDGET 2024 - SCOOP COMMENTARY
Gordon Campbell -On Nicola Willis And Her Surplus Fetish
The coalition government is perversely on track to reduce the state’s ability (a) to respond to emergency events and (b) to address the current levels of unmet social need. Oh, and the outlook is for weakeconomic growth at best, over the forecast period. For the young, Budget 2024 must be looking like a one-way ticket to Australia.
BUDGET 2024 PRESS KIT - FULL PRESS RELEASE COVERAGEFinance Minister's Budget 2024 Speech
To bring revenue and expenses back into balance, the Government has a choice. It can manage its spending, or it can raise additional revenue.
Given that choice, the Government’s focus is squarely on managing spending. The key top-down tool for this is operating allowances – the amount set aside for discretionary new spending in each Budget. We are setting tight but realistic operating allowances in this Budget and in future Budgets. We intend to stick to them.
