Channel 10 Sydney ran a story on the NSW State government's push to remove Fire Service Levy in that state. While the opposition's John Robertson is clearly against it, the Insurance Council of Australia's Mr Campbell Fuller and LMI Group MD and International President of the International Institute of Claims Preparers Professor Allan Manning spoke in favour of the removal of the taxes on insurance.
