Quotes

"The fact is we're putting a levy on big business to pay for it - together with the abolition of the existing paid parental leave scheme it is fully covered by the levy" Mr Hockey said
"In no way, form or fashion could any more development underneath that plan that has been proposed by the department of infrastructure and planning [be allowed] in our town, specifically no more tourism development.”"
He says there will still be times when the party head office will choose a candidate of "exceptional" quality but that "from now on, intervention by the national executive should be the exception, not the rule"
"It's still a matter of, if we were to bring in some restrictions ... how you would umpire that."
