One Nation has agreed to back the Federal Government’s company tax cuts package in return for a commitment to a pilot program for taxpayer-subsidised apprenticeships. The Government still requires the support of independent senators Tim Storer and Derryn Hinch, with the latter advising that he will back the tax package provided that it does not apply to the four major banks. Liberal Democrat David Leyonhjelm has vowed to withdraw his support for the tax cuts if the Government agrees to Hinch’s demands. Meanwhile, Labor has signalled that it may seek to reverse any reduction in the tax rate for larger companies if it wins the next election.
