Retirement of David Tune PSM

MC 51/14

Senator the Hon. Mathias Cormann
Minister for Finance

30 May 2014

On behalf of the Australian Government I would like to thank the Secretary of my Department, David Tune, for his 38 years of distinguished public service to Australia.

David Tune is an outstanding public servant who has served governments of both political persuasions with great distinction.

He has made an enormous contribution to public policy and government administration in Australia, in particular across social and economic portfolio areas.

Personally and on behalf of the Government I would like to thank him very much for the great support and wise counsel he has provided to us since the election, in particular in the preparation of the 2014-15 Budget.

We wish David and his family all the very best as they enter an exciting new phase in their life.
