Victorian Premier Denis Napthine says he will go to Canberra’s COAG meeting in May to “kick, scream and fight” for a fairer share of GST.
Victorian Premier Denis Napthine has vowed to “kick and scream” for a fairer share of the GST cake at the next meeting between the federal government and states and territories.
Dr Napthine said it was wrong that Victoria received about 90 cents in every dollar it pays in GST, while Queensland and NSW got a dollar for dollar return.
He said the recent allocation of the GST would make things worse and he would fight for a better deal at the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting in May.
“I will go to Canberra and I will kick and scream and fight for our fair share for Victoria,” Dr Napthine said.
