Labor Forces Government to Back Down on GST Plan

Shadow Assistant Treasurer Andrew Leigh today welcomed the Abbott Government’s back down on imposing the GST on moveable homes.

“Over the past two months, Labor has been campaigning strongly in the community against the government’s plan to charge GST to people living in moveable homes,” said Dr Leigh.

“The Government’s back down will provide some welcome relief to pensioners and other vulnerable Australians, who had joined the grass roots campaign against this wrong-headed measure.”

“I particularly acknowledge Labor members Justine Elliot and Jill Hall, who have worked tirelessly with their communities to protect moveable home parks from the GST.”
