Dr Leigh to move:

That this House:

(1) notes that:

(a) a bipartisan parliamentary report recommended the creation of the Parliamentary Budget Office, which is now operational having passed Parliament with bipartisan support;

(b) the Australian people deserve a proper policy debate in 2013, with all parties presenting properly costed policies; and

(c) the updated information contained in the Pre-election Economic and Fiscal Outlook will not affect the cost of most policies, and therefore policy costings should not be delayed until then; and

(2) calls on all parties to have their policies costed, and release them to the Australian people in enough time to have a well-informed debate.

Ms Ley to move:
