Personal Explanations

An article today by ABC Rural online about the decision to allow Filipino bananas into the country states:

Mr Burke says it was the National Party, and Warren Truss as the then Agriculture Minister, that initiated the process in 2000.

I have read the transcript and, frankly, I cannot see any reference that Mr Burke made such a statement. He would not make such a statement because he knows that it is false. The decision to open the door to Filipino bananas was made during the term of the current government not the previous government.
