I can confirm to the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate that the government does believe that GMH and other manufacturers deserve government support. The sort of support which we have already put on the table for GMH includes abolition of Labor's FBT proposal, which would have put a dagger into the heart of the automotive manufacturing sector in this country. We have also said that we would remove the carbon tax, which we know has the impact of a reverse tariff of approximately $400 per vehicle made in Australia.
