Matters of Urgency - Taxation

Senator FIFIELD (Victoria) (4.29 p.m.)—Cutting tax is a topic very dear to my heart, to Senator Ronaldson’s heart, to Senator Colbeck’s heart and to Senator Egglestone’s heart—indeed, to the hearts of all coalition senators on this side of the chamber. Under the economic stewardship of the Treasurer...

Take Note of Answers - Voluntary Student Unionism

Senator FIFIELD (Victoria) (3.30 p.m.)—One of the principles that separate senators on this side of the chamber—be they Liberal or be they Nationals—and senators on the other side of the chamber is the principle of freedom of association. Senator Lundy—Don’t hide behind freedom of association! Sen...

General Business - Economy

Senator FIFIELD (Victoria) (5.37 p.m.)—Senator Ludwig has moved today that the Senate note the deterioration in the Australian economy. This is obviously some strange use of the term ‘deterioration’ of which I was not previously aware. To listen to senators opposite, one could be forgiven for thinki...

Senator FIFIELD (Victoria) (10.13 a.m.)—The New International Tax Arrangements (Managed Funds and Other Measures) Bill 2004 is a further step in implementing the government’s package of international tax reforms designed to enhance the competitiveness of Australian managed funds, facilitate investme...

Adjournment - Water Safety

Senator FIFIELD (Victoria) (7.37 p.m.)—I have been provoked to speak in the adjournment debate as a result of the outrageous way that the former shadow sports minister Senator Lundy has misled the Senate.

Matters of Public Importance - Economy: Debt Management

Senator FIFIELD (Victoria) (4.22 p.m.)—What is so telling here is not what Senator Sherry has said but what he has not said. Why is it that every time Labor come in to talk about the economy they do not want to talk about net government debt? They want to talk about foreign debt and the current acco...
