Littleproud calls for faith in basin plan
‘‘The problem with the plan is there hasn’t be trust. We have to take a leap of faith,’’ Mr Littleproud said.
Katunga dairy farmer Daryl Hoey questioned the recent federal agriculture department-led consultations regarding the test, which were plagued by a lack of information and short notice.
He said state governments should be given a timeframe to develop the test before the department began discussing water-recovery projects.
Mr Littleproud has ordered the department to return to locations they felt had not received enough notice.
Mr Littleproud was also in town spruiking upcoming consultations regarding mandatory code of conduct.
He is hopeful a framework can be agreed to before Christmas and in place for the next dairy season.
