Senator WATSON(12.08) —I am not referring to the contributions tax when I am alleging what the Treasurer promised. I am referring to a specific component of the contributions tax; not the contributions tax, per se, across the board. I am asking the Minister for Finance to be honest with the people of Australia and to be specific in relation to the Treasurer's promise-which he has not denied-which a lot of people have inferred is a lot wider and relates to superannuation issues generally. I take issue with the Minister when he says that that does not apply just to the contributions tax. It applies only to a specific part of that contributions tax. Will the Minister confirm or deny that?
