Coinciding with the release of CEDA’s research report, this address will examine the budget fiscal problem and outline a package of options that can return the Federal Budget to surplus by 2018-19 and beyond.

In his first speech on this research, Mr McClintock will outline the options which have been prepared by a high level bipartisan Balanced Budget Commission, chaired by the speaker. The Commission includes some of Australia’s most senior former public servants and economists from both the private sector and academia.

The speech will outline clear options for changes to expenditure and revenue that are both fiscally and politically viable.
