A GOODS and services tax is very unpopular with the public and would therefore be a 'struggle' to introduce, the Treasury and Resources minister has said.

Gavin St Pier, pictured, made his comments after a wide-ranging consultation showed respondents' dislike for reducing the general rate of income tax while introducing GST.

'I think what the consultation tells us is that to introduce GST would not be popular and so it would be a struggle,' he said.

GST was the least favoured option in two questions asked in the personal tax, benefit and pensions consultation.
