Questions without Notice

My question is to the Treasurer. Can the Treasurer confirm that he said last year to Ray Hadley:

Well, what we want to make sure of with superannuation is that we need to respect the fact that people have been saving under particular rules over a long period of time that there is nothing that punishes or penalises them retrospectively on any of these things. I mean that is one of those iron clad rules about when you look at these systems.

If that is the Treasurer's ironclad rule, why did he do the exact opposite last night?
