These latest reports and in particular the Productivity commission are nonsence to say that it will have a marked effect on the overseas On - Line sales is absolute rubbish.My daughter is in retail in Sydney the problem with overseas On - Line they pay no tax eg GST super,the list goes on we forget WA metro has say 1.8m people Sydney has 6m Bondi Junction which is probiably the largest shopping centre in Sydney is shut at 6 o,clock most nights The gov keeps going on about the east and what they do Wayne Spencer and co are mouth peaces for the large retailers.My main concern is the On-Lne which is destroying Australias retail ecnomy if it fails being our largest employer the country will be in huge trouble economicly.I have spelt this out in detail in an Email to Bill Shorten if you would like a copy

WA does not have the population or tourisum yet to support open all hours. The average person has X amount of dollars to spend a week regardless of when the shops are open, extending the hours will not bring in any more revenue. People think that work on a Sunday is extra money, but for how long, before Sunday becomes a normal working day.
