Business Support Following Circuit-Breaker Lockdown

My question is for the Minister for Industry Support and Recovery and concerns the support being provided to businesses in my electorate of Hawthorn
during the circuit-breaker lockdown. The more than $500 million circuit-breaker business support package is helping Victorian businesses directly affected by the industry restrictions, including operators in the hospitality, retail, events and creative industries, with further targeted support. The package builds on more than $6 billion in direct economic support from the Labor government to help businesses get through the pandemic, including through three rounds of the *Business Support Fund.
Many Hawthorn constituents have raised the issue of government support with me, so my question is: how will businesses in my electorate benefit? I look forward to the minister’s response.
