NSW Premier Mike Baird insists a negative gearing overhaul should be considered and has foreshadowed a fresh debate on tax reform amid a looming black hole in health funding.

His planning minister Rob Stokes has broken ranks with federal Liberal colleagues to attack negative gearing and argue housing tax breaks should favour first homebuyers instead of wealthy investors.

"Yes, it should be considered. Have I got a position yet on it? No, I don't," Mr Baird told the National Press Club on Tuesday.
