That the Senate—
(a) commends the Prime Minister and the Government for talking about the need for income tax relief for middle-income earners affected by bracket creep; and
(b) encourages the Government to propose relief for bracket creep—either in the Mid-Year Budget Review or in the 2018-19 Budget—and bring a bill to that effect to the Parliament at the earliest opportunity.
The coalition government is focused on keeping more money in the pockets of hardworking Australians, while maintaining our trajectory back to budget balance.
Question agreed to.
