Coleman: Brighter Future for Clean Brite and Local Small Businesses without the Carbon Tax
Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 17:55
David Coleman MP, Federal Member for Banks, has welcomed the Australian Government’s repeal of the carbon tax stating that local small businesses will be better off without the tax.
“In its two year lifespan the carbon tax cost the Australian economy $15.4 billion,” Mr Coleman said.
“And it has had a bad effect locally too. Small businesses have been hit hard by the carbon tax. Clean Brite Dry Cleaners was particularly badly affected”.
In December last year, Mr Coleman raised Clean Brite Dry Cleaners as an example of the effects of the carbon tax on small businesses when asking the Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Greg Hunt, a question in Parliament.
