(Question No. 612)

Mr Kelvin Thomson asked the Minister representing the Minister for Employment, in writing, on 14 November 2014:

Will the Minister consider attending a forum on the issues of economic growth, manufacturing, unemployment and job creation in 2015 should I arrange one; if so, what dates or timeframes would suit.

Mr Pyne: The Minister for Employment has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

There are 19 Parliamentary sitting weeks in 2015. If the Honourable Minister can find it within him to support policies in the Parliament that promote economic growth, policies to reduce unemployment and that support job creation, a request will be considered.

That said, it is noted that the Hon. Member opposed the repeal of the Carbon Tax, Mining Tax, Economic Action Strategy and other job creating policies.
