Questions without Notice
Goods and Services Tax
I thank Senator Wang for his question. The government of course is not withholding any information. The government is managing relations with the states and territories in an orderly and methodical fashion consistent with past practice by previous governments of both persuasions.
Senator Wang may be aware that there is a scheduled meeting of federal, state and territory treasurers in Canberra, I believe, sometime in the middle of April. As is the usual practice, in the lead-up to that meeting, the Treasurer will provide relevant information to state and territory treasurers in the usual way.
