‘Most people understand’ fuel excise cut can’t keep ‘going forever’: Chalmers English Headline


Treasurer Jim Chalmers says it was a “difficult decision” to stick to the previous government’s end date for the fuel excise cut.

Mr Chalmers in a media conference on Tuesday also acknowledged the end of the excise relief will be difficult for Australians.

“But we put a premium on responsible budget management, we do have to make room for these pressures … and so ending that fuel excise relief next Wednesday night is part of the story.

“I think most people understand that the budget can’t afford to keep the excise cut going forever, and people are preparing for the fact that will return to its normal setting.”
