Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan) (14:05): My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Local Government and Minister for Small Business, the Honourable Adem Somyurek. My question relates to the minister’s portfolio responsibility for small business. As a result of the recent COVID-19 health crisis, the measures that have been put in place due to public health concerns have left a lot of businesses struggling to cope. Most small businesses have reported a significant drop in revenue. Some have been able to quickly adapt to the changed circumstances, but for others adaptation options are limited. Even businesses which are in high demand and can continue to offer their traditional services are feeling the effects. In these difficult times any support for businesses can be significant. My question to the minister is: can the minister outline the relief and support measures that have been put in place for commercial tenancies that would be beneficial for the businesses and investors in my area of Western Metropolitan Region?
