Labor will be opposing this motion. We have commenced the 2023-24 budget process, and it is the Budget Process Operational Rules that govern the consideration of policies that are being brought forward. Given these are cabinet deliberations, it would be inappropriate for these to be released at this time. I note that we released the previous Budget Process Operational Rules after the budget process was completed, in the interests of transparency and accountability. Once the 2023-24 budget is delivered, we will consider further requests for these rules, given the obvious interest in them.
