Australian Treasurer Wayne Swan delivers the 2012 Federal Budget in Parliament House, Canberra, May 8, 2012. Swan said the budget would deliver a small A$1.5 billion ($1.53 billion) surplus in the year to June 30, 2013, thanks largely to cuts in spending on defence and foreign aid and abandoning planned tax cuts for companies and savers.
