The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:25): Supplementary: why, if there has been what the minister has quoted as 'excessive consultation to date', do these farmers feel unsupported by the government, and has she personally reached out to these particular farmers and their families?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:26): The honourable member hasn't named the particular farmers to whom she is referring.

Members interjecting:

The PRESIDENT: Order! I am trying to listen.

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN: I don't have a copy of the Stock Journal on me at the moment, but if the member would like to provide those names—obviously, she must have them here with her—because I certainly have spoken with a number of producers directly.
