Australian leader promises first budget surplus in a decade

SYDNEY, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Australia’s conservative government will deliver in April the country’s first budget in a decade with a surplus, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Tuesday.

Morrison said his government will deliver its annual budget proposal on April 2, earlier than its traditional date in early May.

The moves comes as Morrison’s government readies for a federal election due by May.

The new budget year begins July 1. (Reporting by Colin Packham; Editing by Richard Borsuk)
