ACOSS to call on Commission of Audit to confront long term challenges, not ‘quick fix’ cuts

Who: ACOSS CEO Cassandra Goldie

When: 11.30am Friday November 29, 2013

Where: Outside Channel 7, 52 Martin Place, Sydney

The Australian Council of Social Service will caution the Federal Government against relying on a ‘quick fix’ of spending cuts to restore the Budget, when it releases its submission to the Commission of Audit on Friday November 29, 2013.

ACOSS CEO Dr Cassandra Goldie will outline considered proposals to put our nation’s economy on a sustainable long term footing. She will argue this can be done by replacing wasteful and poorly targeted programs and tax concessions and raising much needed revenue without cutting essential programs.
