Dissenting Report from Labor Senators

Labor Senators note that the Government:-

Labor Senators believe the Government has neither established a policy rationale for the establishment of RIC nor justified the cost.  We recommend the Bill be rejected by the Senate on that basis.

At the very least, the Government must address the governance concerns raised by the Senate Committee for the Scrutiny of Bills and other witnesses including the National Farmers' Federation.

Senator Glenn Sterle
