FED: Acoss suggestions would require higher taxes Costello

Federal Treasurer PETER COSTELLO says a call for an increase in public and social services
spending by Australia's peak welfare group would require higher taxes.

Overnight, the Australian Council of Social Service said the government needed to
boost its investment in public and social services by $3 billion.

However, Mr COSTELLO says that would require higher or new taxes, something the government
hasn't planned.

ACOSS says the funds injection is necessary if Prime Minister JOHN HOWARD is serious
about making his social coalition work.

The council says the boost in spending should be part of a comprehensive plan to help
rural communities.

And it should include an increase in government spending of at least one per cent of
GDP for each of the next five years.
