11 Nov 09 Treasurer's address: "Tax Reform for Australia's Future"
On 5 November 2009, the Treasurer, Wayne Swan, gave an address entitled "Tax Reform for Australia's Future" to the Economic and Social Outlook Conference held in Melbourne, Victoria.
The Treasurer said: "I expect the report [of the Henry Review] will provide a ten-year plan for reform, with recommendations that are evidence-based, and built on sound, best practice tax policy. I don't expect that the Review will contain draft legislation, or anything resembling it. The Government will receive the report at the end of this year. We'll consider its recommendations very closely and we'll release the report, along with an initial response, in early 2010."
