Abbott vows to
cut red tape in
Last week federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott addressed the Chamber of Commerce Business Matters lunch at Panthers, using the event to endorse Liberal candidate for Lindsay Fiona Scott.
Mr Abbott described western Sydney as a economic powerhouse, home to people who want a better life.
“The longer the current government lasts the better the previous government looks,” he said.
“The golden age of prosperity has gone, we need to look for prosperity in the future.”
Mr Abbott outlined the three fundamentals of the Liberal economic policy.
Firstly, he said he aimed to get taxes down, by ditching the carbon tax, getting government spending down and productivity up.
Secondly, he gave a commitment to cut red tape, with government departments required to quantify costs, with specific targets to be met.
The third main area was infrastructure.
“The people of Penrith know about the world’s longest car parks, we have to do better than this,” he said. “We will work with the O’Farrell government because western Sydney needs to get up and go.
“I know, because I have spent a lot of time talking to a lot of people, how disappointed Australians have been over the past few years.
“In 2007 this government came in with high hopes and these have been universally trashed.”
