The Coalition plans to get down to business today, with Mr Abbott saying there are two key issues that need to be addressed.

Mr Abbott’s first order of business will be to instruct the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to prepare legislation to repeal the carbon tax.

Treasurer Joe Hockey will also instruct the Clean Energy Corporation to cease operations.
