Some members of the shadow cabinet are expected to urge Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to back down on his plan to reverse company tax cuts at a meeting on 29 June, amid a growing internal rift over the issue. Meanwhile, Finance Minister Mathias Cormann has advised that the Federal Government will not pursue its full company tax cuts package in the Senate until after the five upcoming by-elections, which he says will be a referendum on Shorten’s tax policy. Shorten in turn has accused the Coalition of having a secret deal with One Nation to pass the tax package after the by-elections.
