I want Australians to have a choice about what sort of car they want to drive. I want them to have a choice about whether they use gas or electricity. I want them to have a choice about whether they work in a heavy industry in a regional area or have that job taken away from them, which is what would happen under the policies of Labor and the Greens. That's what would happen to those jobs.

I want Australians to have those choices. I want Australians to be able to plan for their future with confidence. And I want the big companies that make these electric vehicles to get their prices down without the Australian people having to pump subsidies into them so if they wish to buy them they can do so. But the Labor Party want to send money over to Europe to subsidise big manufacturing companies. This is the problem with the Labor Party. We don't always know what their policies are.
