Taxation reform [6 November 1997]

At our meeting today it was unanimously agreed that Australia needed fundamental reform to its national tax system as we go into the 21st Century.

Premiers, Chief Ministers and State Treasurers agreed with the Federal Treasurer and I that such a reform should not involve any increase in the overall taxation burden.

We will meet again to further progress our discussions.
