Defence Minister Peter Dutton has addressed the rising cost of living, saying the issues will get worse should Labor be elected on May 21.

The comments came after he was asked by Today host Karl Stefanovic when prices will get back under control.

“If you’re worrying about electricity prices, and petrol prices they will always be higher under Labor,” Mr Dutton responded.

“That’s the track record over the last 30 years.”

The claims were refuted by Deputy Labor leader Richard Marles.

“Peter’s comments there are literally unbelievable,” Mr Marles said.

“This is the second highest taxing government in Australia’s history, the highest being John Howard.”

“The reality now, we are seeing rising cost-of- living, we are seeing falling wages. We are going to see rising interest rates. That is Scott Morrison’s economy.”
