Questions without Notice
Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction
As I said yesterday, I had no association and have no association with the compliance action and I have never made a representation in relation to it. But I tell you what I've made representations with respect to: with respect to the farmers in my electorate. I note the comment from the member for Eden-Monaro yesterday that the issue wasn't raised with him. I have to confess I wasn't surprised by it, despite the fact that this listing covers his electorate as much as mine. I wasn't surprised by it one bit. I'll tell you why. I know why the farmers of Eden-Monaro aren't raising the issue with their local member. It is because he doesn't care. His constituents are raising it with me, as are mine. We stand up for farmers on this side of the House. Those opposite simply don't.
