Federal election 2022: Morrison again dodges questions on house price impact of superannuation policy

Scott Morrison has refused to answer questions for a second consecutive day about the impact on house prices of the Coalition’s flagship re-election policy.

The Prime Minister and his wife Jenny visited a housing estate a 30 minute drive from Darwin in the seat Lingiari, held by Labor on a 5.5 per cent margin.

He was there to again spruik the Government’s plan to let first home buyers access up to $50,000 of their superannuation towards a deposit.

Mr Morrison went on the attack after Labor’s foreign affairs spokeswoman Penny Wong earlier described the proposed scheme as a “gamble”.

Standing in a display home, he told reporters: “I was disappointed yesterday when I heard Penny Wong talk about this policy saying people would take a gamble on their on their house. A gamble?

“The most important investment you make in your entire life as a family is owning your own home. If Labor thinks that’s a gamble, then they have lost touch completely with the aspirations and goals of Australian families, who their first objective is to ensure that they can own a home.”

But repeatedly asked why he wouldn’t release Coalition modelling on the impact to house prices from the policy, the PM deferred to vague remarks made by Josh Frydenberg earlier in the morning.
