Notic es continued

4   Mr Crook: To move—That this House:

(1) notes that:

(a) Goods and Services Tax (GST) revenues are distributed to the States and Territories in accordance with a formula driv en by Horizontal Fiscal Equalisation (HFE) principles and are legislated for in the Federal Financial Relations Act 2009 ;

(b) for 2010-11, Western Australia received just 68 per cent of what it would have received if GST revenue was distributed across Aus tralia on a per capita basis—the lowest relativity applied to any State since the formula was introduced; and

(c) every other State and Territory, by contrast, received not less than 91 per cent of what it would have received if GST revenue was distributed evenly across Australia; and

(2) calls on the Government to amend the Act to stipulate a minimum GST revenue-sharing relativity of 75 per cent, which would allow continuing respect for the principles of HFE, but with proper recognition for population, a nd without Western Australia being unfairly penalised for its disproportionate contribution to our national economic prosperity. ( Notice given 16 August 2011. Time allowed—30 minutes. )
