Tasmania Shadow Minister for Primary Industries Jeremy Rockliff

Victor P Taffa
Shadow Minister for Primary Industries Jeremy Rockliff said the Green-Labor Government needs to take immediate steps to ensure that disaster relief funding is made available to all farmers affected by bushfires around Tasmania.
“Areas of the North-West coast and Central Highlands have also been hit hard by bushfires, and farmers in these areas who were affected deserve a fair go. We support the TFGA* calls to extend the geographical scope of grants available.”
“At what is an extremely stressful and difficult time for those farmers affected, we need to do everything we can to help our primary producers rebuild their businesses and livelihood.” Mr. Rockliff said.
