Questions without Notice
Again, Senator Ciccone, I completely reject the premise of your question. Almost four million Australians have now lodged their tax returns, and do you know why they've done that? It is because the first piece of legislation that we passed when we were elected to office were the tax cuts for the Australian people that we took to the election, which the Australian people voted for. They will always be better off under a coalition government, in particular when it comes to employment. On this side of the chamber, we understand that it is employers that create jobs, not governments. We put in place the economic framework, and the economic framework under us is leading to a stronger economy. There are more jobs for people who are out there putting their hands up and saying, 'We want to work.'
