Prime Minister Tony Abbott has ruled out ever increasing taxes on superannuation.

His claim comes despite a Treasury letter, obtained by Labor under freedom of information, showing the federal government was looking into options to change tax concessions until the opposition released its own policy.

“We have made a very clear decision that we aren’t ever going to increase the taxes on super,” Mr Abbott told reporters in Williamtown on Wednesday.
