Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) (Leader of the Opposition) - I support the motion. The papers we are ordering to be printed are the last will and testament of the Treasurer (Mr Snedden). They deserve to be printed as the testimony of liberalism at its last gasp after 23 years. These papers record the results of monumental failures and in particular the results of the monumental blunder of last year's Budget. This is what these papers reveal. The same Treasurer who has produced the worst unemployment since 1962 and who produced the Budget strategy deliberately designed to create that unemployment asks us now in these papers to accept that his Budget strategy this year is the best that can be devised for this nation. Will it get the 112,000 acknowledged unemployed men and women promptly back to work? It will not.
