Legislative Council: Tuesday, May 31, 2022


Citrus Industry

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (15:19): Supplementary: is the minister committed to ensuring zero tolerance measures are adequately resourced and in place?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:19): I thank the member for the supplementary question. Of course, the Yamba quarantine station is another place that I visited in my first regional visit outside of my own area back in the first weeks of this government. The zero tolerance policy in terms of bringing fruit into South Australia will be maintained, and of course the government has put in resources to ensure that the fruit fly response continues and is adequate.
