Hogan brings royal commission into parliament

MEMBER for Page Kevin Hogan has introduced his notice of motion for a royal commission into supermarket and petrol retailing sectors.

When announcing his plans to introduce the motion, Mr Hogan told The Daily Examiner said that he would do whatever he needed to to get it up, with reference to his current position on the federal parliament crossbench and said via his Facebook page today that he was talking with colleagues from all political parties to get this up.

Mr Hogan said there had been also been senate enquiries into various issues, but they did not have enough "teeth", and the royal commission would provide protection for people to give evidence into the matter.

"I hear enough stories from our farmers and processors that warrant a Royal Commission into our major supermarkets. The allegations of misuse of market power, unconscionable conduct and the use of unfair contract terms must be investigated by a Royal Commission."
