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 ...

Friday, June 10, 2016Australian Greens Leader Senator Richard Di Natale and Greens Treasury Spokesperson Adam Bandt MP expressed strong disappointment at the savings measures announced today by the Labor party.   “We are hearing a lot about zombie measures in the budget, well today the Labor party are resurrecting the zombie of Tony Abbott by refusing to join with the Greens and the community in saying no to harsh cuts for students, families and research,” Senator Richard Di Natale said.   “$4 billion has been slashed from higher education funding, leaving Australians that want to access higher education through the HECS-HELP benefit scheme without support.   “The $5.5 billion of savings announced today pale in comparison to the $13 billion of savings measures the Greens have identified that could be achieved by phasing out the private health insurance rebate to be reinvested into our public health system.   “The Greens believe that we should be raising revenue and i

"Our $5 billion commitment to front line specialist domestic violence services is in addition to our previously announced commitment to double federal funding for homelessness programs and our commitments on affordable housing. "Our funding for domestic violence includes at least $100 million over 2 years for the construction of new homeless shelters and women's shelters. "Australia can fund domestic violence services so no woman is turned away, by raising revenue from those who can afford to pay their fair share, for example throug
