Questions without Notice
My question is to the minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann. When asked in February whether he could commit to keeping company tax cuts all the way through until the election, the Prime Minister said: 'Yes, absolutely.' On 31 July, the front page of The Daily Telegraph read: 'I won't flip on tax: PM: Exclusive: Turnbull tells colleagues he'll defy critics on big business policy'. This afternoon the Prime Minister stood next to Treasurer Morrison and the Minister for Finance to announce that the government had junked the centrepiece of its economic plan. So, now that you've junked your enterprise tax plan, what is the Turnbull government's economic plan?
