MR BARR (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Urban Renewal and Minister for Tourism and Events) (9.15): As this is the final speaking opportunity on the budget, I would like to take the opportunity to thank members for their contributions to the budget debate over the last three days, the estimates committee for their work in the intervening period, and indeed all of my ministerial colleagues and members of the government for their support in the considerable amount of work that goes into producing the annual budget.

It is a budget that is for Canberra—for Canberra suburbs, for Canberra’s future; a budget that has a vision for a more inclusive city, one that is powered by renewable energy and with efficient public transport; one that will see our economy continue to grow and all Canberrans included in that prosperity. It is a very important budget for this city at this time, and gee, it stands in marked contrast to what we see from conservative governments elsewhere in this country. We are very proud on this side of the chamber of our support for a budget that is inclusive, a budget that seeks to grow this economy, to build this city and to continue our efforts to make Canberra an even better place to live. I commend this year’s budget and all of the hard work of my ministerial colleagues to the Assembly.

Title agreed to.
