Question to the Deputy Prime Minister - Fuel Tax

Mr FITZGIBBON (Hunter) (14:01):  My question is to the Deputy Prime Minister, representing the Treasurer. I refer to the Deputy Prime Minister's statement:

Fuel tax is a tax on distance. If ever there was a country that should not aggressively tax fuel, it is a vast country like Australia. It is a tax on doing business outside of the capital cities.

Does the Deputy Prime Minister agree with himself or with the Treasurer on making Australians in rural and regional Australia pay more for their fuel?
