Prime Minister Scott Morrison has stressed that offering all Australians a low-fee, government-run superannuation fund as a default option is not government policy.

His comment comes after Jobs Minister Kelly O’Dwyer told The Australian Financial Review she would support such a fund, managed by the government’s $150 billion Future Fund, being offered to everyone.

“I’m aware of that proposal. It’s not government policy,” Mr Morrison told reporters in Vanuatu on Wednesday.
