Turnbull Government


Ms PLIBERSEK (SydneyDeputy Leader of the Opposition) (14:49): My question is to the Prime Minister. When the Prime Minister deposed the member for Warringah, he said:

… ultimately the Prime Minister has not been capable of providing the economic leadership our nation needs …

But isn't it the case that, almost one year later, the Prime Minister is still following the economic plan of the very person he deposed? Is this what the Prime Minister meant when he promised new economic leadership?


Mr TURNBULL (WentworthPrime Minister) (14:49): I can only assume that the honourable member was not paying attention during budget night, because she knows that we set out in the budget a whole range of reforms, including reforms to superannuation, reforms to enterprise tax, reforms to personal tax—all of which were new reforms and new proposals—and they have all been presented and they will be taken through this parliament, the 45th Parliament, and in this session, consistent with the mandate we received from the Australian people at the election.
