In terms of the preventive agenda, part of that is what people eat. I note that the member mentions the mission gardens. My understanding is that it was a Queensland government decision to abolish those mission gardens. But I will write today to the Premier of Queensland to ask her to reverse that decision of the Queensland government; I will write today, and I will share a copy with the member.

In relation to other matters: we will work together to encourage more home-grown produce, and, as to any barriers, we will deal with those. I'm not aware that there was any federal government decision in relation to that, but I'm always happy to examine it.

In relation to dinghy fishing: again, I'm not aware of any ban. That would fall squarely within my colleague the Minister for Agriculture's area, and I will make a representation to him the moment I sit down next to him.
