Mr CHRISTENSEN (Dawson) (21:29): The member for Moreton said that the carbon tax was bang on the money. It certainly has been bang on the money in Dawson. In the three major sectors—agriculture, tourism and mining—it is hitting already. I talked about a Bowen tomato farmer today who has a $12,000 carbon tax bill. I did not mention that, on top of that, he has got to find an extra $9,000, on the government's figures, for his electricity bill. So there is $21,000 in the first year alone. And that is just in one sector. It is hitting all sectors, and this government will be held to account for that.

Debate adjourned.
