Treasurer knows a good paper

"THE Daily Examiner is my favourite paper", are not the words you expect to hear when you introduce yourself to the Federal Treasurer.

Just minutes earlier Treasurer Chris Bowen had held the paper aloft to make a point about health funding to the media pack outside Grafton Base Hospital.

He was pointing to a report card the paper printed extolling Federal Member for Page Janelle Saffin's effectiveness in gaining health funding for her electorate.

"Giving her a score of 95 for that was spot on," Mr Bowen said.
