Prime Minister Tony Abbott has revealed that his biggest achievement for women in 2014 was repealing the carbon tax.
In an interview with Channel Nine’s The Today Show, host Lisa Wilkinson asked Mr Abbott what he thought was his biggest achievement as the country’s Minister for Women.
“Well, you know, it is very important to do the right thing by families and households,” Mr Abbott said. “As many of us know, women are particularly focused on the household budget and the repeal of the carbon tax means a $550 a year benefit for the average family.”
He then promised to have his “fair dinkim” paid parental scheme introduced to the Parliament in 2015. Mr Abbott also added that he was “very pleased” to be able to promote three women during Sunday’s cabinet reshuffle.
