Ombudsman pays tribute to Tim Fischer AC

The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman, Kate Carnell has paid tribute to former Deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer:

“Tim Fischer was a great Australian and a champion of small business.

The former Deputy Prime Minister was passionate about rural and regional Australia and rarely gave a speech without telling a story about a local business that was doing amazing things.

Who could forget his support for Australian brands like Mick’s Whips?

He had a tremendous political career and should be remembered for his significant contribution to Australian public life.

My thoughts are with Tim’s family and many friends at this difficult time.”
