Ms MADELEINE KING (Brand) (18:10): I believe I'm speaking in continuation on this bill, and I just want to clarify an amendment that I spoke of when I first started speaking to this bill. I move the amendment:

That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

"whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House:

(1) affirms the importance of encouraging small business to make new capital investments; and

(2) notes that the Opposition's Australian Investment Guarantee is permanent, will provide targeted tax relief for businesses that invest in Australia and Australians, and guarantees new investment".

I call for the amendment to be seconded.

Mr Champion: I second the motion and reserve my right to speak.

Ms MADELEINE KING: I thank the member for Wakefield for seconding that amendment. I just want to reiterate our support for this bill and of course the amendment we've moved. Labor supports small business. We always will and always have. We have an excellent package of small business policies that we will take to the upcoming election, and I look forward to taking that to the people of Western Australia and indeed the greater Australian community.
