Members Statement - Small Business


Tuesday, 2 June 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton):

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy.

With economic data pointing to a deeper recession in Victoria than in other states, these businesses need support.

There are still businesses that have waited up to two months to be processed for a state government Business Support Fund grant.

One recently wrote to me:

“I know I’m not the only one in this storm, but that doesn’t mean I don’t matter too.”
