Broken GST system failing WA

Monday, 27 March 2017 16:42

Mr Wilson (4:42pm) — There is a problem with the distribution of GST proceeds and it needs to be fixed. Everyone accepts that there are swings and roundabouts in the system, and since Federation there have been considerable periods in which Western Australia has been a net beneficiary of Commonwealth financial support.

Centrelink is a mess

Monday, 27 March 2017 10:42
