The Federal Government’s hopes of passing its company tax cuts in the Senate have been bolstered after One Nation’s Brian Burston indicated that he will support the package in defiance of party leader Pauline Hanson. Burston suggests that the upcoming by-election in the seat of Longman in Queensland may have influenced Hanson’s decision to withdraw her party’s support for the tax cuts. Burston also says he only became aware of Hanson’s decision when he read about it in the media. The Government requires the support of eight crossbenchers to pass the legislation.
