‘I’m not going to be criticised for flip-flopping’: Hanson on company tax cuts
Senator Pauline Hanson has confirmed she won’t be “bullied” or “threatened” into changing her mind on company tax cuts.
The government needs at least four crossbench members to have a change of heart on the reform, if it is to get across the line.
But the One Nation leader isn’t budging. The cuts will only gain Hanson’s support if Turnbull commits to a crackdown on multinational tax avoidance.
“I’ve been quite adamant about this, it comes down to multinationals,” says Hanson.
“They’ve got to actually prove to me that they are going to start pulling in the multinationals. I’m not going to be criticised because I’m flip-flopping. I just want to actually make the right decision for Australia.”
Hanson also indicated her intentions for the rest of this week’s parliamentary proceedings.
“The biggest thing I’m going to do in government business is about housing affordability. I’m going to move an amendment to their bill. That will be that foreign investors cannot buy a house under $1.5 million.”
“Most Australian people want to buy a house, but they are terribly expensive. So if you stipulate that they cannot buy anything under $1.5 million, that is leaving it for Australians to actually buy up that housing.”
