Mr SHIPTON —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That this House-

(1) is of the opinion that-

(a) The encouragement and growth of a healthy small business sector is a key to a revitalised Australian economy;

(b) There is a need for the Government to understand the problems facing small business in Australia today, and

(c) There is a need for the Government to focus attention on and understand the role of the entrepreneur, the self-employed and the small business sector generally in economic sector recovery, and

(2) Calls on the Government to develop a program of action and to designate 1984 as the year of small business in Australia.
