The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:48): Supplementary: given the huge costs of generators and diesel, does the minister think that the $4,000 grant is sufficient to irrigators, particularly those grapegrowers who are already doing it tough due to increased input costs and reduced market access?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:48): I thank the honourable member for her question. She may perhaps not be aware of the $3 million that was also announced as part of the package.
