State leaders will have ‘no excuses not to adhere’ to national plan: Frydenberg

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says there will be “no excuses” for state leaders not to adhere to the plan which they agreed to at National Cabinet.

Asked whether the federal government would continue providing support for a state which chooses to lock down after Christmas, the Treasurer said states should have “no expectation” of emergency economic support.

“We’re picking up the tab for pretty much all the income support,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“And 50-50 in the business support.”
