The Treasurer will deliver the 2012-13 Budget on Tuesday 8 May 2012, with his Budget speech beginning in the House of Representatives around 7.30 pm (AEST).
Budget materials will be available under embargo to approved members of the media in a secure lock-up area in Parliament House, Canberra.
Media organisations are invited to apply to the Treasury for access to the lock-up by submitting the names and positions of employees seeking access by 5 pm on Friday 27 April 2012. Applications and enquiries should be sent to email@example.com
Media organisations should restrict their applications to essential employees only, as space in the lock-up is limited.

When the lock-up commences at 1.30 pm, those already signed in will be able to move immediately into the venue and collect their Budget materials.
