Senator McKENZIE (VictoriaDeputy Leader of The Nationals and Minister for Regional Services, Sport, Local Government and Decentralisation) (15:04): I took a question on notice on behalf of the Deputy Prime Minister earlier in the week, and I just want to advise the Senate that, in response to that, he is pleased to see the funding announcement for Foodbank by the Prime Minister. Recognising the important role it plays in regional communities, particularly those affected by drought, the Liberal-National government has increased its funding for food relief, and it looks forward to working closely with Foodbank, SecondBite and OzHarvest to maximise the benefits our vital food relief services provide to vulnerable and homeless Australians.
