Land Tax

MRS NOLAN: Mr Speaker, my question is also directed to the Chief Minister in her capacity as Treasurer. I refer her to the one per cent land tax that her Government introduced in relation to residential rental premises. What work was done by your Treasury in relation to any threshold that could have been introduced, and what revenues would have been raised had the threshold been introduced at $10,000, $20,000, $30,000, $40,000 or $50,000 on the unimproved capital value?
