November 6th: As reported in his website http://jbh.ministers.treasury.gov.au/transcript/018-2013/ the Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey has made decisions not to implement some of the Labour Party’s s proposed budget policies. In particular, he is reported as saying “The third significant initiative we are not proceeding with is the cap on self-education related expenses.” This is great news for those Australian residents that are able to claim their university fees as tax deductions.
