Help busi­nesses in health care

Western Suburbs Weekly - - State Election ‘17 - By JON BASSETT

MORE sup­port for busi­nesses con­nected to health is wanted by Perth Sur­gi­cal Shoe Mak­ers owner An­dries Van Ton­der in Wem­b­ley af­ter the State Election this Satur­day.

“La­bor may be bet­ter for my clients, while the Lib­er­als may be bet­ter for my bot­tom line,” Mr Van Ton­der said.

He would like to see more sup­port from both par­ties for small busi­nesses. How­ever, per­son­ally, it is the is­sue of land tax that af­fects him.

“I used to pay $3000 and now I pay $10,000 on my other three premises,” he said.

He would like both par­ties to take greater care of those who used ser­vices re­lated to their health care, such as his mak­ing and fit­ting of spe­cial­ist sur­gi­cal shoes.

“Peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity should be looked af­ter bet­ter. For in­stance, I make shoes for some­one one year, then I don’t for sev­eral years just be­cause they can’t get through the health sys­tem,” he said.
