Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan) (12:42): My constituency question is directed to the Honourable Adem Somyurek, Minister for Local Government and Minister for Small Business. My question to the minister relates to his portfolio of responsibilities for small business. I am glad to hear that Wyndham City Council and Moreland City Council have joined the Small Business Friendly Council initiative. By cutting the red tape we can build a stronger small business culture in Wyndham city, and I thank the mayor, Cr Mia Shaw, for this. Like the small businesses in Wyndham city, there are many other small businesses in Western Metropolitan Region. Many of these businesses have been owned by people for several generations, while others may be owned by first generation immigrants. Starting a small business is not easy, but by cutting unnecessary red tape the Andrews Labor government is bringing these people’s dreams to reality. My question to the minister is: can the minister give me an update on how the Andrews Labor government plans to bring more councils from Western Metropolitan Region into the Small Business Friendly Council initiative?
