Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. I am going to persist with this matter. I refer to Treasury modelling of an increase of the GST rate to 15 per cent and an expansion of the base to include food, water and sewerage. Can the minister confirm that Treasury modelling shows that this tax hike would deliver additional revenue of $45 billion in 2017-18?
