SME Meeting

Asked for a read-out of the meeting, the PMS said that this was one of a series of meetings that the Prime Minister was having, listening to the concerns of businesses. We recognised that some small and medium-sized businesses were facing tough times and that was why, as the Prime Minister had said in the House yesterday, we would be taking action and announcing the action in the PBR in order to help small businesses at this time. We were only able to do that because of the commitment that we were making to support the economy through a fiscal stimulus.

Asked if the small businesses had any particular areas where they wanted more assistance, the PMS said that it would probably be best for people to speak to the small business organisations themselves to get a view as to what they were asking of the Government. The PMS added that it was a very useful and constructive meeting.
