GOVERNMENT VOTES TO CALL ON ITSELF TO EXPLAIN WHY IT HAS FAILED ON TAX TRANSPARENCY

The House of Representatives has this afternoon voted in favour of my amendment to the International Tax Agreements Amendment Bill 2016.

The amendment “calls on the Government to explain why it has failed to close tax loopholes and increase transparency in Australia.”

Given the Minister for Revenue and Financial Services supported the amendment and was at the dispatch box when the House voted for the amended Bill, I look forward to the Minister explaining why the Government "has failed to close tax loopholes and increase transparency in Australia”.
