Centre Alliance senator Stirling Griff says his party is “close” to a deal with Scott Morrison to pass his full tax cuts agenda and tackle high gas prices.
“It’s getting close … we’re a 100 per cent behind income earners getting an extra boost in their pay packet,” he told ABC radio.
“We just need to cross the t’s and dot the i’s to ensure that the money given in not taken away with increased energy costs.
“I’m confident we’ll get there in the next day or two. We’re moving along very positively.”
Senator Griff also dismissed the Labor Party’s proposals to split the tax cuts bill in the senate.
“If it’s altered in the upper house it will go back to the lower house, and it will not get through,” the Centre Alliance MP said, “It’s an all or nothing proposition for the government.”
