Why is Tom Zorich hiding the Liberals car policy?

Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, has again called on Liberal candidate Tom Zorich to support the Federal Government’s plan to secure the local car industry.

“Mr Zorich recently sent an introductory flyer to the Wakefield electorate which made no reference to the car industry” Nick Champion said.

“Why is Tom Zorich hiding the Liberals plan to cut automotive co-investment?”

“The closure of Holden would cause the loss of 16,000 jobs in South Australia, reduce the economic activity by between $0.5 billion and $1.5 billion and cause a decline in state taxation revenue”

Mr Abbott and the Liberals are saying no to:

- Over a $1 billion that GM Holden will inject into Australia; - GM Holden continuing operations beyond 2020 in Australia; - Manufacturers that supply to GM Holden.

“Mr Zorich owes it to Holden workers and their families to make his position clear” Nick Champion said.
