The Prime Minister did put to the Tasmanian people a very comprehensive plan in relation to Tasmania's economic future. That plan included many things, such as new jobs at Cadbury's, new jobs in the dairy sector, new jobs in construction on the Midland Highway and Hobart Airport, and so the list goes on. What we did not know, what the Australian people did not know at the time, was that Labor had factored in the cut of 14½ thousand Public Service jobs. That is the Labor legacy and we are seeking to deal with that.
