Bill ShortenHon Bill Shorten MP,  Federal Member for Maribyrnong Leader of the Opposition from 13.10.13 wants to give small business a 5 per cent tax cut and has pledged free university degrees for 100,000 maths, science, engineering and technology students.Handing down his official budget reply speech tonight, the opposition leader also said primary and secondary school children would learn computer coding as part of his vision for the future and a Labor government would boost innovation by providing loan guarantees for start-up companies and help to commercialise inventions.He also promised an overhaul of infrastructure policy, pledging to give Reserve Bank-style independence to Infrastructure Australia to decide where to build roads, rail, ports, bridges, social housing, smart energy grids, efficient irrigation and digital infrastructure.But there was no detailed plan last night on how Labor would pay for expensive promises such as the small business tax cut and free university degrees, which the government last night called magic pudding economics.
