Members Statement - Economy


Thursday, 23 April 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton):

With a 14 per cent collapse in gross state product in the first six months of the year, hundreds of thousands in our community will be left without jobs, and projections of tougher economic conditions in the second half of the year mean our state may face a deeper recession than others.

We need an urgent economic plan, a plan of hope which puts revival of the private sector at its core.
