My question is directed to Senator Birmingham, who I understand represents finance matters for the government at the moment. Minister, can you please clarify whether Western Australia's $4.7 billion GST is under threat or not? According to media reports today, the federal Treasurer, Scott Morrison, has warned that a coalition government under Peter Dutton could scuttle the deal for WA. Therefore, can you guarantee to my constituents that there is no threat to WA's GST deal irrespective of whether there is a change in the government's leader?
