The Tatura Guardian - - News - From Page 1

‘‘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.
