GST win for local community
Member for Lalor Joanne Ryan has congratulated the community on its successful campaign to force the Abbott Government to back down on imposing the GST on moveable homes.
“This is fantastic news for those living in local residential parks but also the wider community,” Ms Ryan said.
“But it was only achieved because of the work and determination of local residents who were willing to stand up and be heard.”
Ms Ryan raised the matter in Parliament on multiple occasions and presented the House with a petition protesting the change.
“Locally, we campaigned strongly and together we have successfully fought against this plan.”
“This back down will provide some welcome relief to those living in mobile homes, particularly those on a pension or fixed retirement income.”
“As with most of the Abbott Government’s policies, this would have hurt the most vulnerable in our community.”
