I move:

That the Senate—
notes that:
Australia is experiencing a period of record economic growth, and
the 2007-08 Federal Budget provided tax cuts to those earning more than $75,000, at a cost of $3.5 billion per year; and
calls on the Government to invest approximately $3 billion per year to lift the aged pension by $60 per fortnight.

Question put.
