Q. We read about the news broadcasters’ federation petitioning the government on a level playing field with print on GST. In your opinion, are governments partial to print owners?

 

A. It’s a technical point. Can’t really comment on this as I am neither aware of its historical background nor the merit of the case. The NBF has the democratic right to demand it for its sets of reasons. Increasingly, level playing field would be the order of the day if as a country we act in favour of a laissez-faire economy.
