Question on delays on the establishment of on the spot fines for illegal farm trespass

Ms BATH (Eastern Victoria) (12:51:511:): My constituency question is for the Minister for Agriculture. Minister, 18 months ago I moved that an inquiry into agricultural trespass, theft, sabotage and reduced penalties be instigated in this Parliament. A year ago the report came out with a specific recommendation for on-the-spot fines. The government accepted those fines almost eight months ago and is still yet to implement on-the-spot fines that will protect farmers, protect livestock and protect biosecurity. The minister has been very tardy, and I ask the new minister on behalf of many of my constituents, but specifically Mr John Gommans from Caldermeade Farm: when will you introduce these on-the-spot fines?
