[by video link] My question is to the Prime Minister. Independent analysis of tax office data published today reveals that next year 69 per cent of the benefit of your tax cuts goes to men and only 31 per cent to women, and that the top 30 per cent of income earners get 96 per cent of the benefit, while the bottom 70 per cent only get four per cent of the money. Prime Minister, in the middle of the biggest recession we've seen in our lifetime, which has hit women the hardest, why do your trickle-down tax cuts massively disadvantage women and put millionaires ahead of the million unemployed?
