Australia Won’t Revisit Carbon Tax This Term, Deputy PM Says

The Australian government won’t re-litigate the issue of a carbon tax this electoral term, Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce said.

“There have not been any discussions about revisiting the carbon tax,” Joyce said in an interview on Sky News TV Sunday.

Australia’s Senate voted to scrap a price on carbon in 2014 after then Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the levy threatened the nation’s commodity-dependent economy.
