Fruit fly

Mr WALSH (Murray Plains) (09:42:37) — I want to raise the concerns of the fruitgrowers in my electorate who live and run businesses in the Gannawarra shire, and those concerns are around fruit fly. Mildura Rural City Council and Swan Hill Rural City Council do very good work with the fruitgrowers in their areas, but Gannawarra shire, I believe, has been dragging the chain. That is what the fruitgrowers have explained to me. I raise their concerns in this place and urge the minister to have a word with Gannawarra council to improve their program around fruit fly management, particularly for those fruitgrowers close to Kangaroo Lake.

Together we can make a difference

Help build a better Murray Plains
