Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Jacinda Ardern denies the Government's revenue strategy is in tatters.

EY tax policy leader David Snell has made the claim, and says we need something in the Budget to outline a new direction.

He suggests the country doesn't have a programme that'll ensure a progressive system, that's fair and balanced and promotes long-term sustainability and productivity.

The Prime Minister told Mike Hosking she disagrees with those statements altogether.

She says the Government never budgeted on any revenue as a result of the Tax Working Group and any proposals around things like the Capital Gains Tax.
