The 'mid-term mutuals manifesto' was issued in June 2013.
Key messages include:
- Since the 2010 General Election – the coalition has implemented many of the proposals from the first Mutuals Manifesto
- This is a positive document, full of ideas for how mutuals can help our country
- Mutuals do not need and are not asking for favours from government. But they do need to do business on a level playing field
- The sector seeks to work with Government in a partnership to maximise the contribution that mutuals can make to our economy and society
