The government does not believe it would be appropriate to proceed to a vote on this matter today given that Mr Smyth has given no notice of this particular motion. The manager of government business will seek to adjourn debate shortly to ensure that all members have the time to consider the issues before them. But, to be very clear, the government has made an extremely large amount of information available and has been very clear in relation to our intent on taxation reform. I reiterate that, in addition to the information available in the budget, it is the government’s intention to update our rolling five-year tax reforms later this year.
