Mr TRUSS (2:58 PM) —My question is to the Prime Minister. Will the Prime Minister guarantee that he will not increase taxes or introduce new taxes in the next 12 months?

Mr RUDD (Prime Minister) —I draw the Leader of the National Party’s attention to the fact that this government reduced taxes as a proportion of GDP by one per cent. And, if he is interested in participating in the public debate, does he support the position of the leader of his party in the Senate, which decries and undermines this package for pensioners and others?
