Parliament Sits On Saturday Morning

The House resumed at 9am on Saturday to debate the last clauses of the Crown Minerals Amendment Act 2013 Amendment Bill’s committee stage.

The Government still wishes to introduce and pass through all stages the Customs and Excise (Budget Measures—Motor Spirits) Amendment Bill.

The bill seeks to raise fuel tax by 3 cents a litre each July for the next three years.

The policy decision behind the bill was announced last December.

The Crown Mineral Amendment Bill makes changes to a bill passed six weeks ago, which has not yet come into law.
