Sur­plus prom­ise

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

SCOTT Mor­ri­son isn’t about to loosen the bud­get purse strings in the face of the slow­est eco­nomic growth in a decade.

The prime min­is­ter said his gov­ern­ment must live within its means and keep to the sur­plus it promised in the April bud­get.

“We are only in our first sur­plus year and La­bor is al­ready want­ing to spend it all in an afternoon, flail­ing their hands about like they did last time when Aus­tralia went into dif­fi­cult times,” he said yes­ter­day.
