Higher Education


Mr BOWEN (McMahon) (14:21): My question is to the Prime Minister. I refer to the Prime Minister's previous answer on funding higher education. Will the government support Labor's policy on high income superannuation tax concessions which will raise $14 billion over the decade?


Mr TURNBULL (WentworthPrime Minister) (14:21): The answer to the honourable member's question is no, the government is not going to support the opposition's policy. The government will consider all suggestions, all ideas, on superannuation and tax. We are doing that at the moment. We explained last week that we are carefully considering a lot of these matters. But is the government going to take a sort of rubber stamp and stamp 'approved' on every proposal from the opposition? Of course not, and the honourable member knows that. The honourable member knows that—and, really, he is wasting question time by asking questions to which he knows he will get a perfectly predictable answer.
