Questions without Notice
My question is to the Prime Minister. During question time yesterday someone said: 'Increasing capital gains is no part of our thinking whatsoever.' Prime Minister, can you please help the House and let us know who said that?
I thank the honourable member for his question. And I will take the opportunity to further develop the arguments that I have been making about the dangers of Labor's policies on capital gains tax and negative gearing.
It's waffle? That is very interesting. The member for Blaxland regards—and I hope every single house owner, homeowner, in his electorate is listening to that. Their elected member of parliament—I say this to the electors of Blaxland—their member of parliament says talking about the value of your home is waffle! That is what he thinks.
