DEPUTY LEADER of the OPPOSITION PRE S S RELEASE SHADOW TREASURER

KEATING'S «TJ/MS1IKSS

Today, the Treasurer sank to a new low.

During his daily dose of personal abuse in Question Time,

Mr Keating said the following:

"It is only the Liberal Party of Australia which

would, like a sheltered workshop, house these sort of failures."

Is this what you believe Mr Keating - that disabled people in sheltered workshops are just failures?

This from a Government and a Treasurer which talks compassion and purports an alleged commitment to social justice.

I call on the Treasurer to apologise.
