 Alex Hawke MP, Federal Member for
Mitchell welcomed the announcement by the Prime Minister, the Hon Tony Abbott
MP, calling for public consideration of the exposure drafts of the carbon tax
repeal bills.

  

“The Prime Minister,
the Hon Tony Abbott, before the election, made a clear commitment that the
Government’s first item of parliamentary business would be to repeal the carbon
tax and yesterday he announced from 1 July 2014, the carbon tax will be
abolished.  This will lower costs for
Mitchell businesses and ease cost of living pressures for households – taking
the pressure off electricity and gas bills for the residents of Mitchell.

   

“The repeal bills
will also contribute to the Government’s deregulation agenda by removing 440
pages of legislation and reducing business compliance costs by about $100
million annually.

 

The exposure drafts
of the carbon tax repeal bills are now available at
www.environment.gov.au/carbon-tax-repeal/consultation.html. Final
date for submissions is 5pm, Monday, 4 November 2013.

 

 

Send
both the completed cover sheet and your submission (in Microsoft Word or other
text based formats) by email or post:

Email: repeal-submissions@environment.gov.au (the preferred option)

“Public consultation was
seriously lacking in the previous government. Good governments engage in proper
consultation, which can further refine the draft legislation before its
introduction to the Parliament.  I
encourage Mitchell businesses to take this opportunity to have their say, ”concluded
Alex Hawke.

Since September 2001, hundreds of Australian families
have been impacted by major terrorist events in New York, Bali, Jakarta,
London, Egypt, Mumbai and Nairobi.


 

In 2012,
the previous Government agreed to provide financial assistance to victims of
terrorism, but only for future victims and not existing victims. In 2011, I
made a
speech in the Parliament supporting Tony
Abbott, in pushing this worthy cause through the House. I am proud to be part
of a newly elected Government that has rectified this anomaly.


 

The
Department of Human Services will administer this payment and will set up a
system to receive applications from claimants. 


 

Claims can
be made from 21 October 2013. 


 

More information
is available through the Department of Human Services on 1800 040 226, or at

As a member of the Abbott government, we will
do a better job for the country as well as fixing our economy nationally.
I will continue fighting for
smaller, better Government and advocating for the concerns of our community.

 

The Abbott government will
get our debt and deficit under control and run the economy well.  We will
immediately act to reduce the red tape burden on our businesses, large, medium
and small. We will abolish the Carbon Tax and Mining taxes and we will get our
borders under control.  

 

 

We will make Australia stronger and better
and we won't let you down.
