The Shadow Treasurer also gives a reply speech.
The Shadow Treasurer typically sets out the Opposition's response to the government's budget with more detail than that provided by the Opposition Leader. Below I have uploaded word frequencies for both this year's Shadow Treasurer (Chris Bowen, Labor), and last year's Shadow Treasurer (Joe Hockey). You could compare the Labor Shadow Treasurer (Bowen) with the Liberal (Hockey). You could compare the Shadow Treasurer for this year with the speech by his Leader, Bill Shorten. You could compare Hockey as Shadow Treasurer (in 2013), with him as Treasurer in 2014.
