- General Public
Western Australia is currently subject to restrictive trading hours legislation. These restrictions often illogically discriminate between retailers, allowing some stores to trade when others are strictly prohibited
The geneal public of Perth supports the removal of such restrictions to allow all shops to have the option of trading further than the current 6pm closing time.
It is reported that extending the hours which retailers can trade will create more jobs and attract competition to the existing market place.
We the people of Western Australia and beyond respectfully ask the Australian Labor Party of Western Australia and The Liberal Party of Western Australia to support the Retail Trading Hours Amendment Bill 2009 which was introduced to the Parliament of Western Australia.
The Extended Trading Hours in the Metropolitan area of Perth, WA petition to General Public was written by progressionforWA and is in the category Law Reform at GoPetition.
