Hockey faces test of his political career

AFTER a widely criticised first attempt, Treasurer Joe Hockey will face the test of his political career tomorrow.

Despite being largely absent from pre-budget announcements in the past fortnight, Mr Hockey will unveil the full details of the government's financial plans for the next four years.

While it has traditionally been the Treasurer's night in the spotlight, senior government figures have been at pains to emphasise the "group" contribution to this year's budget, following the political ramifications of the Abbott Government's first budget.

This newspaper will have all the details online after 7.30pm and in print on Wednesday morning. - APN Newsdesk
