Mr PITT: Christmas and the new year are rapidly approaching, and I think it’s an appropriate time to look at the year in review, the challenges that have been overcome and the great things that have happened in the electorate of Hinkler in the last almost-12 months.
Bundy, Bay and Bush!
Keith Pitt is the Federal Member for Hinkler. Since he was elected in 2013 he has continued to work hard to deliver for the residents in Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and all the small townships in between.
Keith entered politics to be a strong local voice for regional Australia and his focus is on attracting more investment to the region to help build a stronger regional economy and bring more job opportunities now and into the future.
Mr PITT: The Treasury Laws Amendment (Tax Accountability and Fairness) Bill 2023 is a complex bill, but I’ll be focusing my remarks on the PRRT, the petroleum resource rent tax, deductions cap.
Mr PITT: What we see here is an indication of the inability of this Labor government to actually defend the Australian people and their interests. Our job in this place is to act in the interests of the Australian people, not others. It’s their safety and protection.
