Budget Measures Bill
The Hon. D.W. RIDGWAY (Leader of the Opposition) (12:38): I rise to make some remarks around the Budget Measures Bill, with a particular focus on the element of the bank tax. As members would be aware, the Hon. Rob Lucas, who is our lead speaker and shadow treasurer, has put on the record that the Liberal Party in this chamber is not supporting the bank tax and that we have the view that the rest of the community, or a large percentage of the South Australian community, does not support it either. We will take that part out of the Budget Measures Bill, or recommend to the Treasurer that there be a change.
