Farm Debt Mediation
The Hon. D.W. RIDGWAY (Leader of the Opposition) (16:03): I move:
That this council—
1. Condemns the state government for voting against the Farm Debt Mediation Bill 2015; and
2. Recognises that, in doing so, the state government has denied South Australian farmers the same protections enjoyed by primary producers in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
This motion I am moving condemns the state government for refusing to support the Farm Debt Mediation Bill that was here last year and denying South Australian farmers the same protections as afforded to all farmers in the Eastern States.
