My question is to the Minister for Finance, Senator Birmingham. I refer to page 37 of Budget Paper No. 1. Can the minister confirm that, despite spending of almost $100 billion and the racking up of a record $100 trillion in debt, the wage price index and consumer price index forecasts on that page show a cut to real wages?
