‘Min­is­ter’s flights fine’

The Weekend Post - - Nation -

FI­NANCE Min­is­ter Mathias Cor­mann was act­ing within the rules when he booked flights cost­ing $37,000 to sway cross­benchers to­wards big busi­ness tax cuts, Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Dan Te­han says.

Se­na­tor Cor­mann flew from Can­berra to Ade­laide and then on to Perth on a de­fence jet on June 22 as no com­mer­cial flights were avail­able to fa­cil­i­tate the jour­ney, the ABC re­ported. “What that trip was about as I un­der­stand, was mak­ing sure that we were do­ing ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to see Aus­tralians pay less tax,” Mr Te­han said.
