Questions on possible options

  1. How feasible is the proposed start date for the disclosure of key terms? Are there reasons why these amendments should start sooner or later?

  2. Section 2.4 in the Better Business Reforms Implementation Options Paper contains the matters for which regulations can be made. Do you think that all of these matters require regulations before the reforms can commence? If you think some or all are required, what do you believe needs to be contained in those regulations?

  3. Is 1 January 2020 an appropriate start date for the disclosure of commissions and referral fees? Do you believe there are reasons why this reform should start sooner or later?

  4. Do you think that any regulations need to be made under the new uncollected goods requirements?

  11. How feasible is the proposed start date for the repeal of the Innkeepers Act? Are there reasons this reform should start sooner or later?
