ADJOURNMENT: Small Business: Opposition Policy
Mr CADMAN (Mitchell) (4.59 p.m.) —I want to say a few things about the opposition's policy for small business.
Members of the opposition want to force small businesses to change their casual employees to permanent employees by imposing extra costs; they want to give union access so that they can organise and recruit in small businesses; and they want to stop payments to small business where the victims of unfair dismissals are involved. In a recent Bentley's MRI survey, 500 small and medium sized businesses indicated that they thought unfair dismissal was ill-defined and too complex. I think that the small business policies of the opposition are terrible.
House adjourned at 5.00 p.m.
