  • Prime Minister: Good morning. Eddie McGuire: Prime Minister - a couple of things - we want to get through the budget and also might want at the end to ask you a little question about how you went last week in the United States. 

  • Kieran Gilbert: With us now, the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Mr Turnbull thank you for your time, a busy morning for you. The banks, according to some chatter around the markets, they’re already talking about lifting the mortgage rates from 14 to 15 basis points to recover the levy. Is that a bit rich? What do you say to them for that?

  • Prime Minister: Well good morning. The Budget is fair, it’s responsible, it returns the budget to surplus in 20/21 with a surplus of $7.4 billion.

  • Fran Kelly: Malcolm Turnbull – welcome to Breakfast. Prime Minister: Great to be with you. 

  • Alan Jones: Thank you for your time, very grateful. Now look, Scott Morrison several times last night said that we must live within our means and yet our total debt is rising by about $5.3 million an hour. 

  • Michael Rowland: The task now is to sell the budget. I am pleased to say, I am joined by the chief salesman. The Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Turnbull, good morning and welcome to Breakfast.
