WANTED. A FAIR GO FOR FAMILIES. FARMERS AND AUSTRALIA

I

Federal Leader of the National Party, Tim Fischer said today ■Australia, with its great natural resources, should be a nation of expanding opportunity, rising living standards and social Progress.

Mr Fischer was addressing the Victorian State .Conference of the National Party meeting in Morwell.

["Over recent years it is clear that we have been held back from [making the most of our opportunities. There are many overseas countries with less natural advantages than Australia who are achieving much more.

"That is why I am absolutely committed to the 'FightbackI ' Package which will deliver jobs back so that we can build a country with an economy that can compete with the best in the world.

"The package brings about a ' fair dinkum fair go' for many, particularly beyond the Capital Cities, especially with the abolition of Fuel Excise Taxes.

"This is a saving of $11.40 for every motorist each time they fill an average fuel tank.

"We want young couples to own their own homes and raise families in a country of expanding opportunities, not crippling unemployment.

"We want farmers to stay on their land.

"We want those in business to realise their aspirations and reap the reward.

"We want trades people and professionals to reap the rewards for their skills.

"And we want our young people, as well as those returning to education, to know that their skills are equal to the best in the world."

"These are the things the 'Fightback!'Package sets as objectives.

Mr Fischer said Governments should be helping Australians to realise their destiny, not standing in their way. There must be a sound Coalition victory at the next election and within the

Coalition there must be a rock solid party base.
