Questions without Notice
My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann. After the IMF downgraded Australia's growth outlook for this year by four times more than downgrades for advanced economies as a whole, the chief executive of the Australian Industry Group, Mr Innes Willox, said: 'Our economy needs a spark to regain momentum.' Mr Willox called for an acceleration of shovel-ready infrastructure investment and public works and the bringing forward of income tax relief. Is Mr Willox correct?
