SFF Drought Support Package
The Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party put on the table in Parliament a drought package that would provide real support to farmers and farming communities, disappointingly the Government voted against supporting them.
These policies have been developed with farmers, communities, councils and peak bodies including NSW Farmers and Country Women’s Association.
This is about helping people in the drought-affected reaches of NSW that are facing the fight of their lives. A fight to keep their farms and businesses going, and their families together.
What I have heard loud and clear is that the Government’s current offering of loans – which equals more debt – isn’t good enough and will actually bring more harm.
These measures would provide immediate assistance to drought-affected communities.
