Greens want loans tied to cash rate moves


The Australian Greens will be seeking backing from the federal parliament to make retail banks offer mortgages and small business loans that are linked directly to movements in the official cash rate. The proposal comes after something of a stand-off by the big four banks after the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) cut the cash rate on Tuesday. It was broken by the ANZ Bank on Thursday when it announced it would be pass on the full reduction to mortgages and small business loans. The other major banks - Commonwealth Bank of Australia, National Australia Bank and Westpac - have yet to ...

Government climate body feels pressure to withhold recommendation for carbon pricing until after the election
Friday, May 6, 2016The Australian Greens are calling for the release of a Climate Change Authority report recommending a carbon price, which the Authority decided to delay until after the election - a decision the Minister's Office said made it 'very happy'.  "Voters deserve to know if the Turnbull Government is silencing its own expert climate body to save face before the election," said Greens Leader Richard Di Natale. "The CCA's call for a carbon price shows the Turnbull/Abbott policy of paying big polluters up for the sham that it is. "Serious questions need to be answered as to why the Climate Change Authority, which has a government-appointed board, decided to withhold this critical report until after the election," Senator Di Natale said. Senator Larissa Waters, Australian Greens Deputy Leader and climate change spokesperson, said: "It's crucial Australians have this information before the election, which falls at a tipping point for Australia to save our very way of life by em

Court ruling: Minister must provide safe, lawful abortion for Nauru rape victim
Friday, May 6, 2016The Australian Greens have welcomed the decision of the Federal Court, which has this evening ruled in favour of a Nauru rape victim who the Turnbull Government sent to Papua New Guinea for a termination instead of bringing her to Australia. "This woman has been through enough and it's time she was brought to Australia," the Greens' immigration spokesperson, Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said. "The ruling of the court makes it clear. This woman is still under the care of the Australian Immigration Minister and he must act within the law, ensuring that she's given a safe and legal abortion. "The Minister has shown zero regard for the acute suffering of this young woman, but finally the courts have intervened and pulled him into line. "The court has reprimanded the Immigration Minister for, once again, ignoring doctors' advice. "This woman should never have been sent to PNG and it's shameful that she's been put in this position." The ruling of the court showed that it wou
