Opposition Leader Tony Abbott said a coalition government would scrap the MRRT so there was no need for another inquiry.
He said it was a bad tax that penalised the economy's strongest sector.
"You do not build prosperity by whacking the economy with new taxes," Mr Abbott told reporters in Sydney.
"No country has ever taxed its way to prosperity, so we think this tax should be scrapped not reviewed."
