Members Statement - Stimulus Package

STIMULUS PACKAGE

Wednesday, 18 March 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:48):

Victoria’s almost one million businesses that employ millions of workers are reporting a freefall in earnings.

The government must announce a stimulus package to support business and protect jobs.

The New South Wales government has announced a $2.3 billion package that waives payroll tax, Queensland has announced $500 million in interest-free loans and Western Australia has announced a $600 million freeze on electricity, water and motor vehicle charges and public transport fares.

Daniel Andrews needs an economic plan. Our state’s businesses and workforce need action now.
