Members Statement – Fruit Fly
Thursday 20 September 2018
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.
