Milk vending businesses

MR HARGREAVES (5.36): I rise in this adjournment debate to mourn the loss of yet another small business in my electorate. In the course of the last Assembly the then Liberal government oversaw the slow and excruciating death of the home-vending industry in the form of milk delivery to people's homes. It came up with a paltry compensation process which was grossly inadequate. It was pointed out to them on numerous occasions that the process they had embarked on would mean that that industry would die. Some people have tried their best to keep going. There are a few of these people left, but they get knocked over one at a time.
