Carbon Pricing


Mr HUNT (Flinders) (15:13): My question is to the Prime Minister. I refer the Prime Minister to her previous answer to the member for Aston. Is the Prime Minister seriously suggesting that small businesses such as Mystique printing will be exempted from the 10 per cent higher electricity charges admitted in her own carbon tax modelling?


Ms GILLARD (LalorPrime Minister) (15:13): I am seriously suggesting that it is inappropriate for the opposition to phrase questions or make statements which mislead people about who is liable to pay a price per tonne for carbon pollution. That is what that question did. It sought to mislead on who was liable for paying the carbon tax.
