Consideration in Detail
Graham Perrett (Moreton, Australian Labor Party) Share this | Hansard source
I refer the Minister for Small Business, Independent Contractors and the Service Economy to Appropriation Bill (No. 1) 2008-2009 that the Main Committee is considering. As a member for an area that contains a lot of small businesses, which I know the minister knows well because parts of it were formerly in his electorate—Coopers Plains, Rocklea, Salisbury, Acacia Ridge, some of the manufacturing and small business hearts of Queensland, Eight Mile Plains in particular; a lot of innovation is going on in that part of the electorate—after all the red tape of Work Choices, business activity statements and all the various visitations left by the former government, I ask the minister to outline the budget initiatives in relation to business enterprise centres.
