2019-20 Pre-Budget Submission
Consumer Action has made a submission to The Australian Government Treasury’s 2019-20 Pre-Budget Submission process. We have focused this submission on two areas where budget action could make an immediate difference to give Australians access to fair consumer markets:
- Establish a taskforce to oversee and co-ordinate the implementation of the consumer-centred recommendations of The Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry (Royal Commission) final report.
- Increase funding for the financial counselling and community legal sectors to ensure victims of misconduct in financial and consumer markets have access to justice when and where they need it.
