Email to Andrew Gee, MP and Scott Bucholz, MP from Terrence O’Brien – dated 19 September 2016

Mr Andrew Gee, M.P., Chairman
Mr Scott Buchholz, M.P., Secretary

Coalition Backbench Committee on Economics and Finance 
Parliament House, Canberra, ACT

Dear Sirs

Further to my e-mail of 8 September to you in your capacities as leaders of the Coalition Backbench Committee on Economics and Finance, I attach a copy of my submission of 16 September to Treasury on the first tranche of Government measures.

You will see I am critical of the process of consultation, the apparent separation of the new tax expenditure measures from the tax increases on superannuation, the Government’s proposed objective for its superannuation policy, and the content of some of the new expenditure measures.

My criticisms draw on the four articles by the Centre for Independent Studies which I drew on in my earlier correspondence with you.

Kind regards

Terrence O’Brien
