State Budget Debate

State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall has agreed to Premier Jay Weatherill’s call for a short radio debate regarding the State Budget and issued his own challenge for the Premier to participate in an extended State Budget Debate.

“Jay Weatherill is becoming increasingly desperate,” said State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall.

“South Australians deserve a full blown Leader’s debate regarding the State Budget, not just the abbreviated version the Premier proposed today.

“The Weatherill Labor Government’s short-sighted policies, shallow political agenda and massive new taxes deserve much more scrutiny than one short radio interview.

“I am proposing a State Budget Leader’s Debate be held next Wednesday and for the debate to be held over an hour.”
