Qld MP derides Parallel Imports at ALP National Conference

Three cheers and more to Federal MP and author Graham Perrett. He used the ALP National Conference today to speak out passionately against any moves to allow cheaper imports of books to be sold in Australia.

This Queensland politician from the Moreton region, down by the Bay, knows what it’s all about – he’s a keen reader, an ex-High School English teacher and an author. And someone with the passion and courage to speak out against the Productivity Commission’s recommendations.

Love the man! Here’s what he said:

‘The Productivity Commission’s role is important but some things transcend what a first-year economic student could have written.

“If it ain’t broke don’t try to fix it.

“I’m proud of my literary culture and we should not sacrifice it on the altar of dry economics.”
