The Morrison government is committed to helping small businesses get paid on time. The government has already introduced a number of measures to encourage faster payment times for small businesses, and we've also actively pressured the big-business community to follow suit, with a large number of big businesses already reducing payment times to 30 days or less. The government will shortly introduce the payment times reporting framework legislation into parliament, and we welcome the support from the Labor Party for this important legislation.

Question agreed to.
