LABOR MEMBER FOR THE ENTRANCE The NSW Labor Opposition has slammed the Liberal-National Government’s recent announcements on commercial fishing as a slap in the face for the industry.
Labor Shadow Minister for Primary Industries Jenny Aitchison has today visited the Central Coast with Labor MP's Liesl Tesch and David Mehan to highlight just how out o
The Labor Opposition has condemned the Minister for Primary Industries for continuing delays in providing certainty for commercial fishers, after the NSW Government’s disastrous Business Adjustment Program (BAP) reforms were implemented in May 2016.
Nearly four years after the start of the BAP, commercial fishers across the industry may still potentially lose more of their catch quota.
After the market process, 23 commercial fishers made 40 appeals to the Share Appeal Pan
Labor has called for an extension to special disaster loans and application assistance for fire-affected farmers, after the Berejiklian Liberals and Nationals revealed only 11 farmers across NSW have applied for a special disaster loan.
Speaking before a Budget Estimates hearing today, Nationals Minister Adam Marshall estimated that 10,000 NSW farmers have had their properties, crops and livestock damaged by fires, but confirmed that only 11 farmers have applied.
The NSW Labor Opposition has slammed the Liberal-National Government for failing to acknowledge the crippling effect that the devastating bushfires and ongoing drought are having on those in the commercial fishing sector.
Minister for Agriculture Adam Marshall recently announced that the Government will once again waive all Local Land Services (LLS) rates to provide relief for farmers but not struggling commercial fishers.

The NSW Labor Opposition has demanded the Berejiklian Government immediately implement a marketing campaign to help towns grappling with a tourism crisis in the wake of the recent bushfires and ongoing drought.
Labor Shadow Minister for Investment and Tourism Jenny Aitchison said many businesses owners are struggling with a significant economic loss during what is usually their busiest time.
“I have spoken to accommodation providers and tourism operators up and down the c
I move: That the motion be amended by replacing "Government's" with "Parliament's" in paragraph (2). I congratulate the member for Cootamundra on moving this motion. It is nice to see a motion that recognises the people in farming communities instead of a standard Thursday morning self-congratulatory motion. This State has been in drought for a long time and our hardworking farmers are at the end of their tethers. In the short time that I have been the shadow Minister with re

Shadow Minister for Small Business Jenny Aitchison MP, Member for Maitland, has slammed the Berejiklian Government’s 2019 State Budget as a lacklustre document that does little to support the mums and dads who make up 96 per cent of NSW’s 650,000 small business owners. Ms Aitchison said the focus in the budget on previously announced changes to payroll tax thresholds showed the Government’s lack of understanding of the small business community. “While the Government has boast
How do you take $30,000 in revenue out of a small business with the stroke of a pen? New Minister for Agriculture the Hon Adam Marshall MP is poised to do just that if he pushes ahead with the latest stage of the disastrous commercial fishing reforms instigated by his predecessor, retiring Upper House MLC, Niall Blair. The implementation of the delayed quotas will do just that, according to NSW Labor. Wauchope fishers Matt and Karen Millward invested $150,000 when they purcha
Shadow Minister for Small Business Jenny Aitchison MP has today called out the NSW Liberals and Nationals on their continued failure to address the needs of small businesses, particularly in rural and regional NSW. “The Government has had eight years to understand and address the issues that are important to small businesses,” said Ms Aitchison. “They say they are all about reducing costs, cutting tax and slashing red tape, but their track record tells a different story.
