Liberals will fight for Tasmania’s fair share of GST

Peter Gutwein, Treasurer

In spite of Labor’s scare-mongering today, the Hodgman Liberal Government will fight tooth and nail for Tasmania’s fair share of the GST.

The biggest risk to Tasmania’s budget is another Labor-Green minority Government.

Labor has already made over $500 million worth of election promises but can’t say how they will pay for them, because the reality is they can’t.

Last time there was a Labor-Green minority government, they posted the biggest budget deficits in Tasmanian history, plunged the State into recession, destroyed 10,000 jobs and left behind a $1.1 billion budget black hole.

Under the Hodgman Government, we have balanced the budget, turned the economy around and created over 10,000 new jobs.
