Last updated on December 4, 2023

This is an election leaflet and a card issued by Peter Costello during the 1998 federal election.

Costello was first elected in 1990 to the safe Melbourne electorate of Higgins. He was standing for a fourth term, this time as Treasurer in the Howard government, a position he had held since March 1996.

The election is best known for the government’s tax reform package, including the introduction of a 10% Goods and Services Tax. Following the election, Costello would go on to oversee the implementation of the GST in 2000.
