Description

  • <p class="speaker">Tony Smith</p>
  • <p>The question is that the motion be agreed to.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Malcolm Turnbull</p>
  • The majority voted against a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/debates/?id=2016-12-01.119.2) introduced by Watson MP [Tony Burke](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/representatives/watson/tony_burke) (Labor), which means it failed.

  • >> *(b) to 19 per cent;*
  • >>
  • >> *(c) threatened 32.5 per cent;*
  • >>
  • >> *(d) then to 15 per cent;*
  • >>
  • >> *(e) threatened 32.5 per cent again; and*

  • >> *(f) been unwilling to accept the sensible compromise put forward by the Labor Party; and*
  • >
  • > *(2) therefore, condemns the Prime Minister for preferring to hurt rural and regional Australia and the tourism industry with a 32.5 per cent tax rate instead of accepting a sensible compromise.*
  • <p> I ask that further questions be placed on the <i>Notice Paper.</i></p>
