Senator CHANEY —I can only express disappointment that I do not have a question for the Acting Minister for Foreign Affairs. My question is addressed to the Minister for Finance. Will next week's economic statement, which the Prime Minister has described as one covering major expenditure savings, be confined to decisions resulting in reduced outlays or will it also include increased or new taxing measures as part of the claimed $1 billion savings?

Senator WALSH —The final details of the statement have not yet been decided but in excess of $1 billion will be taken off outlays.
