SA Libs don’t support any GST changes which disadvantage SA

Shadow Treasurer Rob Lucas said today the South Australian Liberals would not support any possible change to the GST distribution formula which would disadvantage South Australia financially.

“We have regularly stated that position publicly and we do so again today,” said Mr Lucas.

 

“The policy position that any change to the formula would only be implemented after consensus amongst all states and territories has worked well for many years and should not be changed.

 

“South Australia’s budget position is already in dire straits after 13 years of Labor’s financial mismanagement and we could not afford any further financial blows from an amended GST distribution formula.”
