Flood plain issue raised in parliament

ALI CUPPER wants to know what she can tell irrigators within the Mildura electorate after NSW lifted its ban on flood plain harvesting.

The local MP raised the issue in parliament yesterday, saying it's a slap in the face to local irrigators who are doing the right thing.

Water Minister LISA NEVILLE says she was also shocked at the NSW decision thinking they had made some progress on the issue.
