That the Senate:

(a) condemns Tasmania's Liberal members and senators for failing to stand up for Tasmania in the face of savage cuts and broken promises by the Federal Liberal Government;

(b) notes the previous statement by the Tasmanian Treasurer, Mr Peter Gutwein, calling for the return of the funds, 'We want our money back! We want our money back, $2.1 billion was taken from the state in last year's Federal Budget'; and

(c) condemns the Federal Liberal Government for slashing $2.1 billion in funding for health and education to Tasmania.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: The question is that general business notice of motion No. 908 be agreed to.
