Rates inquiry misses chance on GST, say politicians

I support efforts to remove it.

I understand why people are concerned about paying GST on rates as the cost of living just keeps on going up. However, this is a matter for central government as they collect the GST. I am focused on reducing the impact of rate increases and have cut the average increase from approximately 6 per cent down to 2.9 per cent. We’ll deliver $1.7 billion of savings in 10 years and I’ve committed to reduce next year’s rate increase down to 2.5 per cent.
