Tasmanian Government welcomes GST guarantee

Peter Gutwein, Treasurer

The Tasmanian Government is working closely with the Turnbull Government to build on Tasmania’s growing economic momentum.

We welcome today’s confirmation by the Federal Finance Minister, Senator Mathias Cormann, that Tasmania will not be worse off as a result of the current GST review process.

Minister Cormann said that: “The (Federal) Government gives this absolute guarantee to Tasmania, that Tasmania will not be a cent worse off at the end of this process.”

This will ensure that the Hodgman Government can continue to deliver on our long-term Plan to invest in vital frontline services.

This well and truly puts to bed Labor’s scaremongering, although I doubt it will stop Labor from continuing to whinge from the sidelines because it’s the only thing they seem to know how to do.
