Chamber backs Small Business Commissioner Bill

Release Date: 21/11/2012
The Illawarra Business Chamber has called for bipartisan support for the NSW Government’s Small Business Commissioner Bill 2012 that will empower the Commissioner to help small businesses.

The Chamber movement has been a vocal advocate for the creation and empowerment of a NSW Small Business Commissioner and included the role as a key plank in the Chamber’s pre-election 10 Big Ideas to Grow NSW campaign.

“I’m very pleased to see such strong support for the role of the Small Business Commissioner to help our 680,000 small businesses in NSW” said Mike Leask, Illawarra Business Chamber CEO.

“We believe the NSW Government’s Small Business Commissioner Bill 2012 is the right bill for the parliament to support and I encourage bipartisan support for the passing of this legislation that will empower the Small Business Commissioner to act on behalf of the small business community.”

“We have been closely involved in the public consultation on the NSW Government’s Bill through our alliance with the NSW Business Chamber, and believe that it introduces the right mechanisms to support the Small Business Commissioner in the role as an advocate for the sector” said Mr Leask.

“The IBC urges the support of the cross bench members of the parliament to support this Bill and encourage them to pass the legislation.”
