Budget reply pleasing for Tasmanian agriculture

01 June 2017

The State Labor Party’s Budget reply showed a pleasing commitment to the Tasmanian farming community.

“We were happy to see that the Labor Party has adopted the agricultural initiatives within the Government’s recently announced Budget,’’ Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) CEO Peter Skillern said.

“We were also pleased to see that Labor has proposed a strategic infrastructure plan to highlight priorities for the next ten years and money for the marketing of primary industries. It has also committed to a comprehensive freight demand study. All of these would be of great benefit to the agriculture sector in Tasmania.”
