Upholding our promise to scrap the carbon tax

The Coalition Government is keeping its election promise to the Australian people, with the House of Representatives yesterday voting to scrap the carbon tax.

Federal Member for Durack Melissa Price said the people of Durack voted against the Carbon Tax and now I have fulfilled my commitment to them in the Parliament.

“This was an important vote for families in Durack, because repealing the Carbon Tax will create a stronger economy with more jobs, and families will on average be $550 a year better off,” Ms Price said.

“The people of Durack have been left with no doubt about who wants to bring down their household power bills and who doesn’t.

“Only the Coalition Government is interested in helping Australian families with the cost of living.” Since the election, Labor has been saying that it is ‘as one with the government’ on repealing the carbon tax. Yesterday, Labor had the chance to prove it, but once again confirmed that it can never be trusted to keep its word.

Labor is not ‘as one’ with the Government. Labor is still ‘as one’ with Julia Gillard and the Greens.

When parliament returns next month, the Carbon Tax repeal will be voted on in the Senate.

“If Labor votes against scrapping the tax, it will be clear proof that Labor has not changed under Bill Shorten,” Ms Price said.

All that stands between families and $550 is Electricity Bill Shorten.

All that stands between boosting local jobs and manufacturing is Electricity Bill Shorten.

Ms Price said the Government would not stop until the carbon tax is gone. It’s time for Labor to step up and help Australian families and businesses by scrapping the Carbon Tax.
