Sydney Q&A: From Budget to Ballot


The 2019 Federal Budget. What it means for the election and you. 


The 2019 Federal Budget is the last pitch for the Morrison government before the election. How will the Coalition prioritise spending over the next four years? What are the key differences in Labor’s response? Who’s stronger on the issues you care about most?


A week after the budget is released, join three of the nation’s most experienced commentators – Paul Kelly, Chris Kenny and Judith Sloan – for this subscriber-only Q&A on the 2019 Federal Budget.
