BHP Billiton CEO Andrew Mackenzie and Fortescue Metals Group CEO Elizabeth Gaines are among the business leaders who have urged the Senate to pass the Federal Government’s company tax cuts package. Mackenzie says the lack of a globally competitive tax rate could prompt BHP to redirect up to $A32bn worth of investment to other countries. One Nation leader Pauline Hanson in particular has been targeted over her stance on the tax cuts, with beef processor JBL stressing that it employs 6,500 people in her home state of Queensland.
