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 ...

Greens say restore TAFE as primary providers of vocational education and training
Speaking at the Victorian TAFE Association State Conference today, Sue Pennicuik, Victorian Greens Education spokesperson, said that “Five years of the brutal market contestability experiment in VET must end.”"The introduction of 'market contestability' under the previous Labor government, saw millions of dollars of public money siphoned into private training companies, with wide-spread reports of substandard training, that continue to this day, leaving students in the lurch and damaging the reputation of VET in Victoria”, Ms Pennicuik said."The current Liberal National government has expanded on Labor’s market contestability model and also cut an estimated $450 million from the TAFE system. This has been devastating, resulting in course and campus closures and mergers across Victoria, the loss of thousands of qualified and experienced staff and fee hikes and loss of opportunity for students”.Today I am calling on all parties to commit to:1. Abandon the failed market contest

Greens will demand amendments to Foreign Fighters bill
The Australian Greens will not support no-go zones, the extension of preventative detention orders and the collection of biometric data at airports in the Abbott Government's Foreign Fighters legislation. Australian Greens spokesperson for legal affairs Senator Penny Wright said the Greens would seek to delay debate on the second tranche of terror laws to allow time for further scrutiny, amid concerns even the government does not fully understand the extent of the powers they are creating. "These laws are draconian and will have long-term impacts on how everyday Australians go about their lives," Senator Wright said. "We will not support the legislation in its current form." "The government is in such a hurry they don't even understand the extent of the changes themselves. To rush the bills through parliament without the chance for proper scrutiny is irresponsible and anti-democratic. "These are the most significant counter-terrorism changes in our lifetime. We don't want to get to a p
