Questions without Notice

My question is to the Acting Prime Minister. Confronted by rising inequality and the cost-of-living crisis, the government has made a welcome shift on tax breaks for the super wealthy. But, if the government can shift on superannuation, will you shift on the stage three tax cuts, which also disproportionately benefit the super wealthy?

Order! Members on my left will cease interjecting. I call the Treasurer.

Thank you to the member for Brisbane for his question. As he knows, as the Acting Prime Minister knows and as I think everybody in here knows, our position on that hasn't changed.
