ABC Sunday Nights with John Cleary on day one of Australia’s Federal Election campaign.
Only five days after the Federal Budget we are at the beginning of one of the longest election campaigns in Australian history.
Just so we don’t get too far ahead of ourselves first up tonight we are going to be looking at the Federal Budget, particularly as it affects those agencies linked to church and welfare services.
We are joined by representatives of the Anglican, Catholic and Uniting Churches, to assess the impact of the budget on their service delivery and on the people they serve.
GUESTS IN THIS HOUR
- Kasy Chambers, Executive Director, Anglicare Australia
- Marcelle Mogg, Executive Director, Catholic Social Services Australia
- Dr. Mark Zirnsak, Director of Justice and International Mission Unit, Uniting Church Synod of Victoria and Tasmania and Tax Justice Network Australia
The ink on the Federal Budget was barely dry before Australians were plunged into a long election campaign. Church and agency representatives join Sunday Nights to assess the Budget and talk about their priorities for the campaign ahead.
