save the strip

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: […] I cannot remember the exact figures, but they received roughly the same number of complaints about landlords of strip shops as they did about landlords of shopping centres, which I thought was interesting. Upon reflection, we can understand why for a range of reasons. They were different sorts of complaints.

Mr J.E. McGrath: Strip shops?

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: Let me rephrase that; shops on shopping strips!

Mr A.P. O’Gorman: Choose your words carefully!

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: The reason I was comfortable using those words was that I had no idea that they would have any other meaning, member for South Perth. The member may wish to enlighten the house.

Mr A.P. O’Gorman: Just call them street-frontage shops.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: Street frontage, yes; strip shops.

Mr M.W. Sutherland: Strip shopping.

Mr A.P. O’Gorman: You are getting the member for Mount Lawley all excited.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: I always get excited when the member for Mount Lawley bursts into action. I will move on because, where he comes from, this could have an entirely different meaning again—I mean Mt Lawley!
