Fairfax media has an ‘exclusive’ report today that upon assuming office Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull immediately axed work on the taxation white paper. It’s often difficult to get an immediate confirmation of these stories, or at least weed out the spin, but we’re talking to who we can and will have more later.
Turnbull didn’t bother with a press release or door stop interview, instead jumping straight on Facebook and Twitter to deny the story.
This story is not true. Tax reform is at the centre of our efforts to create a more productive, innovative economy http://t.co/8bhy6PTTrC
