MINISTER for Agriculture Jaala Pulford has reaffirmed the State Government’s commitment to play its part in the fight against Queensland fruit fly.

It comes a month after the announcement the Greater Sunraysia Pest Free Area Industry Development Committee would be disbanded due to the low turnout in poll asking citrus, stone fruit and table grape growers if they supported its continuation for another four years.

Answering state member for Northern Victoria, Luke O’Sullivan’s question in State Parliament on the likeliness of another vote, Ms Pulford said she was supportive of the industry’s plea for another ballot but the government would remain supportive of the cause regardless of the committee’s status.
