Paul Keating resigned as treasurer in June 1991 and unsuccessfully challenged Hawke for the prime ministership. Keating retired to the backbench, but no-one doubted that a further challenge was coming. Hawke's New Federalism was one of Keating's targets in his campaign during the second half of 1991.

There was a conscious effort to reach a common view.
