Viability of Rural Producers

Debate resumed on the motion:

That this House:

(1) acknowledges:

(a) the financial pressures faced by rural producers;

(b) that farmer viability is the key to food production; and

(c) that producer viability is primarily essential for long term food security;

(2) notes that return on capital rates in agriculture is far below that of other industries; and

(3) recognises that the Government's National Food Plan green paper completely fails to address producer viability.

Question agreed to.
