Matters of Public Importance
A letter has been received from Senator McGrath:
Pursuant to standing order 75, I propose that the following matter of public importance be submitted to the Senate for discussion:
"Australia needed a Budget that reduces inflation and reins in spending to bring cost of living down for all Australians but instead, Labor delivered a high taxing, high spending budget that leaves an Australian family worse off by $25,000."
Is the proposal supported?
More than the number of senators required by the standing orders having risen in their places—
With the concurrence of the Senate, the clerks will set the clock in line with informal arrangements made by the whips.
