Yep, that should fix things !!
Nothing more than a political strategy to keep the peasants calm for a while and be seen to be doing something.
This is simply a stop gap measure to try and be seen to be shoring up the diversification on the board.
What about if Assistant Minister Jane Hume demands that Stephen Glenfield provides the answers to the questions he took on notice from Senator Amanda Stoker at the recent Senate hearings on Oct 23rd ?
What about if Assistant Minister Hume demands that all submissions to the FASEA Code of Ethics are made publicly available ?
What about if Assistant Minister Hume placed a hold on the implementation of the current code until such time as adequate analysis of the destructive impact of sections of the code could be adequately completed ?
What about the Assistant Minister Jane Hume actually did something to assist the incredible and unworkable impact the relentless facets of regulatory change are currently having on mental illness, stress and anxiety on advisers and small business owners and their viability across Australia ?
Isn't the Liberal Govt the party of small business (as Malcolm Turnbull repetitively used to state.) ?
The "engine room of the economy"....the "backbone of the nation" ??
What they were referring to is "other "small businesses.......not financial services.
The Liberal Party in general have been nothing but an abysmal and destructive force against small business in financial services.
There are the odd ones who have the courage to stick their head up and speak out such as Senator Amanda Stoker and Bert Van Manen, but other than that, it is a wall of silence and political preservation that drives most of the Liberal career politicians.
Josh Frydenberg is silent...never hear anything from him at all in regard to small business and financial services.
He is looking squarely at the big chair and doesn't want to rock the boat.

They don't care and never will.
