Last Friday, 'The Australian' claimed on its front page that "Farmers (are) first to endorse Fightback!".

This is not true, the NFF in fact joins a long list of

'significant lobby groups' who have already endorsed FightbackI.

Federal Leader of the National Party, Tim Fischer said today that major industry groups across Australia have publicly endorsed and welcomed the Coalition's Fightback Package. They include the following:-

* Australian Supermarket Institute - "Australian business would benefit from the abolition of the Wholesale Sales Tax system".

* Voluntary Health Insurance Association - "The Opposition proposals were far more palatable and far less expensive than options now before the Federal Government..".

* Real Estate Institute of Australia - "today announced its support for the Coalition's package...".

* Motor Trades Association of Australia - "The Coalition deserves to be congratulated on formulating such a comprehensive package...".

* National Council of Independent Schools' Association - "..must be welcomed by all education sectors."

* Australian Medical Association - " Positive AMA response to Opposition Health Policy"

* National Catholic Education Commission - "..welcomed.. (Education aspects of Fightback!)".

* Australian Institute of Company Directors - " consumption tax".

* Australian Livestock Transport Association - " . .can only result in a decrease in transport costs..".

Mr Fischer said these are just a few samples of the resounding welcome so far given to Fightback! including from the ANZ Bank, Business Council, CAI, Housing Industry Association, Institute of Public Affairs, MTIA, NAFI, Retailers Council of Australia and

and many others and now the NFF.
