Tax stays as is

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

PRIME Min­is­ter Ju­lia Gil­lard will push ahead with cor­po­rate tax cuts funded by the min­ing tax, de­spite a new push by the Greens to use the money for health and com­mu­nity ser­vices. Greens leader Bob Brown and in­de­pen­dent MP Andrew Wilkie want the rev­enue spent on tax­pay­ers rather than tax cuts. Op­po­si­tion Leader Tony Ab­bott has backed the cor­po­rate cuts, but said the de­bate with the Greens was ‘‘ staged’’.
