MR BARR (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Urban Renewal and Minister for Tourism and Events) (3.00): I move:
That this bill be agreed to in principle.
My first budget as Chief Minister is a budget for Canberra.
Canberrans know this is a great place to live and work—and are proud of the Territory we call home.
This budget will ensure Canberra builds on our achievement as the world’s most livable city and remains a place all Canberrans can be proud of, with an economy in which we can all feel confidence.
We are proud of our city’s international reputation, proud of our excellent universities, and proud of the renewal that is breathing new life and opportunity into our town centres and suburbs.
We are proud of our world-class schools and hospitals. We are proud of our leafy suburbs and the neighbourhood shops and parks.
This budget for Canberra goes to the heart of our city and its people—it makes sure we have the right services, facilities, and infrastructure that our residents and businesses deserve and expect.
At their core, budgets are about people. Since becoming Chief Minister I have made it my priority to listen to Canberrans, and to provide the services they need. This budget delivers.
Canberrans need quality schools, roads, hospitals and community services. This budget delivers.
