The introduction of an effects test is a win for small business and consumers, Greens spokesperson for Competition Policy and Small Business Nick McKim says.
“Today is a great step forward, but what we need now is a commitment from Mr Turnbull to legislate for an effects test in this term of government,” Senator McKim said.
“The Greens stand ready to make this happen.”
“Congratulations to the range of businesses and groups who ran such a fantastic campaign for a level playing field.”
“The Greens have been proud to stand with them in their fight for tougher competition laws.”
“This campaign has forced a change of mind from the Prime Minister, the Treasurer and the Small Business Minister.”
