Questions without Notice
Senator Di Natale, before we decide, we will listen, which is why the answer to your question about superannuation is essentially the same as the answer to Senator Urquhart's question about the GST rate. We have made no proposal because at this stage of the discussion we are in the business of listening. When this debate has run its course and all the various contributors to the debate have had their opportunity to participate, we will be making some decisions, and they will be guided by certain fundamental principles. One of those principles, as the Prime Minister has said time beyond number, is fairness. Whatever decisions the government ultimately makes will be influenced by, among other things, considerations of fairness.
