Minister to bring range of programs

FAIR Trading Minister Anthony Roberts will visit Lismore next Wednesday as part of a week long program of activities by Fair Trading for the local community.

Mr Roberts said the Lismore Regional Access Program was his first as a new Minister and he was “delighted” at the prospect of visiting the Northern Rivers.

“Regional access programs bring Fair Trading into local communities en masse,” he said.

“There is a fantastic program of events for local people, from Monday 6 to Thursday 9 June.”

During the week, Fair Trading staff will be doing compliance checks, business inspections and promoting consumer services.

Among the events the Minister would attend was a “Revved Up” information session at Lismore High School.

Revved Up teaches young people about how best to invest in a car, what their rights are and who to go to for help when things go wrong.
