Pre­mier quiet on new taxes

The Observer - - NEWS | NATION -

QUEENS­LAND Pre­mier An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk hasn’t ruled out rais­ing pay­roll tax dur­ing her sec­ond term of gov­ern­ment. The newly re-elected pre­mier yes­ter­day point­edly failed to say whether La­bor was con­sid­er­ing pay­roll tax in­creases, af­ter be­ing chal­lenged on the is­sue by the Lib­eral Na­tional Party.

Op­po­si­tion Leader Deb Freck­ling­ton used her first ques­tions of the new par­lia­ment to quiz the pre­mier over the four taxes an­nounced dur­ing the elec­tion cam­paign, and whether the gov­ern­ment was con­sid­er­ing in­creases to other taxes.
