When small and family businesses are supported, they succeed, and that is why we will always implement policies that are in their best interests. When you lower taxes—and our plan is going to see tax cuts for small and family businesses reduced to 25 per cent—and create the right economic framework for small and family businesses, what happens is they expand. They take advantage of new opportunities and, guess what? They employ more Australians. We get that on this side of the chamber. We get that small and family businesses are the key to job creation in this country. Only last week, we saw very strong job creation figures in Australia, with 44,000 jobs created in the month of August. Since we were elected to office in 2013, 1.1 million jobs have been created.
