Government must act on evidence presented to the Senate Committee Public Hearing in Albury today.
In welcoming the Senators to the North East, Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan AO, stressed the effectiveness of the process to introduce real change will be in the report and recommendations.
“It will be in the hands of Government to address the many issues raised by producers,” Ms McGowan said.
“Congratulations to local farmers for taking a strong leadership role in bringing the many issues confronting the industry to the Government. Following the release of the report, I will work closely with farmers, local branches of the Victorian Farmers’ Federation and the National Farmers’ Federation to make sure the Government takes action.
“As a member of the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Industry, I will be watching the outcomes closely.”
