Farmers deserve the right to have their say on Labor's reef regulations

Queensland farmers have copped another blow from the Labor Palaszczuk Government.

They've only been given until the 15th of March to have to their say on Labor's proposed reef regulations.

This deadline for farmers impacted by the sweeping on-farm reef laws isn't fair and the consultation process has been nothing short of farcical.

It's completely unacceptable that Labor is going to ram these reef regulations through, without talking to the very people these laws will impact.

I believe the farmers deserve more time to have their say on how these changes will impact them and their businesses.

Annastacia Palaszczuk has once again turned her back on rural and regional Queenslanders by not consulting them properly.

It's like the fake consultation process we saw with Labor's anti-farming vegetation management laws last year.

Farmers are being cast aside to make way for Labor's ideological war against agriculture in this state.

The least the government can do is to guarantee that every affected region will get regional public hearings across each of the Cape York, Wet Tropics, Burdekin, Mackay-Whitsunday, Fitzroy and Burnett Mary reef catchments.

Anything less would be an outrageous snub.

Annastacia Palaszczuk is out of touch and isn't a Premier for the whole of Queensland.

It's time to extend the time for submission and guarantee all regions will get a chance to have their say in person.

Only the LNP will ensure farmers always get a fairer reef regulations deal, with a proper consultation process.
