PM must end budget secrecy

Media Release
Scott Ludlam 11 Mar 2014

The Australian Greens say Tony Abbott must come clean about his cruel cuts before voters go to the polls in elections around the country.

"How can we trust a Prime Minister who deliberately withholds information before an election?" asked Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne.

"Tony Abbott is deliberately hiding his true agenda for cruel cuts. He is being mean, tricky and secretive.

"It's completely obvious the PM is holding out until after the upcoming elections in an attempt to pull the wool over voters' eyes.

"Voters in South Australia, Tasmania and WA are waiting to get the truth from the Prime Minister and he should come clean on everything from homelessness to disability support and schools."

Greens Senator for WA Scott Ludlam said Tony Abbott shouldn't leave Western Australia until he has made clear his intentions for harsh budget cuts.

"West Australians deserve to know what they are in for with Tony Abbott."
