DISCUSSION OF MATTER OF PUBLIC IMPORTANCE—ECONOMICS—MANAGEMENT OF THE ECONOMY

The Deputy President (Senator Ferguson) informed the Senate that Senator Abetz had proposed that the following matter of public importance be submitted to the Senate for discussion:

 The resilience of the Australian economy which is a direct result of the responsible economic management of the former Coalition Government; and that it is only as a result of the economic leadership and management provided by the Coalition Government that Labor has been able to implement the policy measures announced on 14 October 2008.

The proposal was supported by four senators and the matter was discussed.
