Palmer to challenge carbon tax in High Court
ABC Updated March 15, 2012, 7:02 am

Queensland mining magnate Clive Palmer has indicated there will be a High Court challenge against the carbon tax because he has advice the legislation is unconstitutional

Our advice is that the carbon tax in its current form is unconstitutional, and that’s recognised in the legislation itself when it says if it’s found to be unconstitutional,” he told the ABC’s 7.30.

“Now, I think the constitution of Australia‘s much more important than having a number of lawyers or Parliament trying to slip around it.

“The constitution sets out how it should be changed, how the states should vote – the majority of Australians have a democratic right to vote.”
