Minerals Council of Australia CEO Brendan Pearson has rejected suggestions that its proposal for changes to the system for distributing GST revenue was influenced by Western Australian National Party leader Brendon Grylls. The MCA’s submission to the Productivity Commission argues that the system disadvantages states that encourage the development of resources projects. Grylls urged the mining sector to lobby for GST reform in 2016, when he proposed to increase the state’s iron ore levy from $A0.25 per tonne to $A5.
