Budget paper one night stand ends for Treasury officials

What it will say is that it has found room for innovation in the logistical exercise, and the budget papers will stay securely at the printing facility until the morning of budget day.

In previous years the budget papers would be delivered late on the Monday to a parliamentary basement, before heading upstairs on the Tuesday.

The later delivery time has removed the need for a budget sleep-over, but a Treasury spokesman confirmed as soon as they come off the truck they will constantly be monitored by department officials.

“Treasury maintains an appropriate level of security at all times to protect the embargo on the budget papers,” the spokesman said.
