  •   Geelong small business support to be slashed by Tony Abbott  Craig Emerson,Darren Cheeseman,Richard Marles posted Wednesday, 28 July 2010   Geelong businesses will lose access to valuable local support under Coalition plans to  slash the Gillard Labor Government's small business innovation program, Enterprise  Connect.     Local ICT businesses currently receive support through ICT Geelong under this program.      Minister for Small Business, Craig Emerson today joined Member for Corangamite,  Darren Cheeseman, and Member for Corio, Richard Marles, to meet with ICT Geelong  about the impacts these cuts would have on the local ICT industry.     “This shows again how out of touch Mr Abbott is. He doesn’t understand that small  businesses in Geelong are doing it tough.     "This is just one example of Tony Abbott's short‐sighted policy approach and disregard  for small business," Mr Cheeseman said.        "ICT Geelong was granted funding through the Workshops, Industry Intelligence and  Networking Service run by Enterprise Connect.  "This will allow them to run a series of workshops for local ICT businesses with the focus  on building innovation, entrepreneurship, profitability and, ultimately, to create more  local jobs.  "If the Coalition is elected, Enterprise Connect will be cut off at the knees and this sort of  support for local businesses wouldn't go ahead."      Mr Marles said there were close to 21,000 small businesses in the Geelong region.     "These represent the backbone of the local economy and keep local people employed,"  Mr Marles said.       "That’s why the Gillard Government has been working to reduce the tax and red tape  burden for small business and has been supporting small businesses throughout the  global financial crisis,” he said.     The Gillard Labor Government will give small businesses the ability to instantly write off  assets costing up to $5,000.     The Gillard Labor Government will also cut the corporate tax rate from 30 per cent to 29  per cent, with small business companies receiving the cut on 1 July 2012, one year  earlier than larger companies.     Dr Emerson said Tony Abbott’s plan would deny sole traders, partnerships and  companies well‐deserved tax relief.      “Tony Abbott has confirmed he will scrap Labor’s plan to give small businesses an instant  write off for assets,” Dr Emerson said.     “The Gillard Labor Government’s announcement of tax breaks for small business, and

  •   Western Sydney's small businesses deserve better than Tony Abbott's  backward tax plan  Craig Emerson,David Bradbury posted Tuesday, 27 July 2010   Small businesses in Western Sydney would be slugged with extra taxes and lose an instant tax  write‐off for assets under Tony Abbott, Minister for Small Business, Craig Emerson and Member  for Lindsay, David Bradbury said today.     A re‐elected Gillard Government will give small businesses the ability to instantly write off assets  costing up to $5,000 and cut the corporate tax rate from 30 per cent to 29 per cent.     In addition, small business companies would receive the cut on 1July 2012, one year earlier than  larger companies.     Tony Abbott has confirmed he will scrap Labor’s plan to give small businesses an instant write  off for assets.     The Coalition would also slug larger companies with an extra 1.7 per cent tax, which would be  passed on to their small business customers.        Craig Emerson and David Bradbury yesterday visited a special Western Sydney Regional  Organisation of Councils (WSROC) forum for businesses in the region.     David Bradbury said there were almost 9,000 small businesses in his electorate.     "As a member of the Penrith Valley Chamber of Commerce I know what an important  contribution small business owners make to our community.      “They are the backbone of our economy and they keep local people in jobs.     "That’s why the Gillard Government has been working to reduce the tax and red tape burden for  small business and has been supporting small businesses throughout the global financial crisis.”     Dr Emerson said Tony Abbott’s plan was to deny sole traders, partnerships and companies well‐ deserved tax relief.      “The Gillard Government’s announcement of tax breaks for small business, and Mr Abbott’s plan  to rescind these tax breaks, shows that only Labor understands small businesses and will  continue to support them”.

  • . • Transcript: Doorstop Interview, 2CC Canberra  Craig Emerson posted Wednesday, 21 July 2010   E & O E - PROOF ONLY    Subjects:      Slogans, Tony Abbott’s cuts, bringing back WorkChoices    PARTON:      This whirlwind election campaign rolls on today. The Uniting Church in Australia has  called on politicians running for election to share their vision for Australia, and not to limit their  discussion to cheap populism and slogans.  Now, I think we can all hear exactly what they’re  saying. The President of the Uniting Church, Alistair Macrae, believes that Australians are eager  to hear message of hope for the future and he has expressed his disappointment at the tone and  the quality of political debate thus far.  I think we’ll put that to our regular Wednesday morning  guest Dr Craig Emerson, the Minister for Small Business, Competition Policy and Consumer  Affairs.  I think the reverend’s absolutely correct, Craig?     EMERSON:   Good morning, Parto.  Well, we are a party of optimism; we are a party that believes  in this great country, the ingenuity of our small business owners, the hard work of those who are  employed…    PARTON:      But hang on, it’s just all been about slogans, its all been about populism.      EMERSON:   Well, I didn’t use one slogan. I actually used the words ‘optimism’ and ‘confidence’  and I’ll add another phrase which is ‘the triumph of hope over fear. ’  And, you know, if you  listen to Tony Abbott, all he talks about is fear and trying to scare people.  What we’re saying is  that this is a great country, Julia Gillard is a consensus politician in the Bob Hawke mould, we  think that we can bring out the very best in the Australian people as they can bring out the very  best in the government.  That’s what we should be looking forward to, that is optimism and a  sense of real national purpose.    PARTON:      I notice online this morning that Julia Gillard suggested that she’s available to  campaign in Griffith with Kevin Rudd.  That’d be pretty interesting.      EMERSON:   Well if that comes to pass, it comes to pass.  It’s not a matter for me to comment  on, Parto, it’s up to the local campaigns and the national campaigns and I am sure Julia’s not  going to be short of requests to campaign in particular seats all around the country as we do  seek to return to government, with this strong message of optimism about the future.  Just  listening to the previous discussion, and about the song  'Yesterday ' , and while it is a lovely  song, it should not be a campaign song, and I reckon that’s what Tony Abbott could embrace. He  wants to take Australia back to yesterday, to the good old days, hark back to the good old days.   Well there are some good things about the past, but there are great things about the future, and  that’s what we are interested in.    PARTON:      Is that really about taking the country back to yesterday or is it about listening to  concerns of constituents and voters, and responding to their concerns?    EMERSON:   Well I think in Tony’s case, I mean he does want to get rid of Trades Training  Centres. He said he is going to axe them. He is going to axe the GP Super clinics.  What could be  more ‘yesterday’ about his promise to pull the plug on the National Broadband Network? He

  • . Transcript: Sky News Interview  Craig Emerson posted Tuesday, 20 July 2010   E & O E - PROOF ONLY    Subjects:      Work Choices; debates; Election campaign.  GILBERT:      Joining me this morning from Brisbane, the Small Business Minister, Craig Emerson.  Also with him you can see the Deputy Opposition Senate Leader, Senator George Brandis.    Gentlemen, good morning to you.  EMERSON:   Good morning, Kieran.    BRANDIS:     G'day, Kieran.    GILBERT:      Senator Brandis, first to you. This issue of WorkChoices, why is it still a distraction?  How come Tony Abbott's been pushed off message on this?    BRANDIS:     I think what â€ I heard the grab you played of Tony on Channel Seven this morning; I  don't think he could have made the position any clearer than he did. This isn't an issue in this  election. The Labor Party is desperately trying to make it an issue because they are trying to  divert attention from the fact that this is a government which, as Julia Gillard herself said three  weeks ago, had lost its way. And yet in the three weeks since she stabbed Kevin Rudd in the  back, the Government is, if anything, become even more chaotic and more meandering than it  was in the two and a half years of chaos before.    GILBERT:      But Senator Brandis, repeatedly yesterday Tony Abbott kept open the option the  possibility of changing some elements of the IR system. You know, the rhetoric of WorkChoices  is dead is one thing, but not giving a guarantee, for example, to change through regulation unfair  dismissal laws is another.    BRANDIS:     Well, I think what Tony Abbott said just before couldn't be more clear and  unequivocal. And this issue about the regulations, it's a false issue because as anybody  understands, regulations can't be inconsistent with an act of Parliament under which they're  made.  Now, we have given, as a pledge of good faith of our commitment, a pledge to leave the Fair  Work Act entirely alone. The Fair Work Act creates the policy architecture of the industrial  relations system introduced by this Government. We're going to leave it alone, and it is legally  simply impossible to do by regulation what couldn't â€ what would be inconsistent with the act of  parliament itself. And we won't.    GILBERT:      Craig Emerson, isn't this just a scare campaign, the Labor Party trying to milk this for  all it's worth? It worked last time so you're trying to do it again this time.    EMERSON:   Tony Abbott said just recently that sometimes it's better to seek forgiveness than  permission. And what he means by that gives a real insight into his personality. That rather than  seek the permission of the Australian people to go back to WorkChoices, he will seek their  forgiveness after the election if he becomes Prime Minister.  And that's the real fear and I think it's a legitimate concern, that Tony Abbott was one of the  principal architects of WorkChoices. When he became Opposition Leader, at the very first press  conference that he held, he said with this cheeky and even crazy look in his eye, ‘the name
