Liberals rule out support for GST increase or GST on food

Thursday, 8 December 2005

The Liberal Party in South Australia would not be supporting any proposals to increase the rate of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) or to broaden the base of the GST to include items such as food, Shadow Treasurer Rob Lucas said today.

“Such a policy would also not be able to be implemented because of opposition from the Commonwealth Government and all other State Governments,” Mr Lucas said today.

“The tax relief package to be released by Rob Kerin prior to the election will include further land tax relief but will not include support for an increase in the rate of the GST or putting the GST on items such as food.”
