THE HON MICHAEL HODGMAN QC MP

___________________ SHADOW MINISTER FOR HOUSING AND CONSTRUCTION__________

The Opposition has called on the Government to

'come clean* on Housing Interest Rates in. 19.85.

In Darwin today, the Shadow Minister for Housing and

Construction, Mr. Michael Hodgman QC. MP., said that it was now

clear that the Hawke Socialist Government had wickedly and dis­

gracefully deceived the Home Owners of Australia in 1984.

. ’Right throughout last year the Hawke Socialist

Government promised that, as a result of its Policies, Interest-Rates in the housing sector would dro^ in 1985. Let us not "beat . · $·-"■ . ■

about the bush - the Hawke Socialist Government lied to the people

of Australia about Interest Rates last year. They repeatedly and

falsely claimed that Interest Rates would come down in 1985,'

Mr. Hodgman said.

Mr. Hodgman said that the Prime Minister (Mr. Hawke)

the Treasurer (Mr. Keating) and the former Minister for Housing

and Construction (Mr. Hurford) had all made promises on Interest

Rates which they must have known could not be honoured.

'Their chickens are now coming home to roost - they

must come clean on Interest Rates in 1985,' Mr. Hodgman said.
