Dairy industry | International interests could ‘take over’ dairy industry without Royal Commission

Australia’s dairy farmers need a Royal Commission into the sector to ensure it’s long term viability, according to Eden-Monaro Nationals candidate Trevor Hicks.

Mr Hicks said a Royal Commission is needed into the dairy industry given 20 years since it was deregulated, farmers have been “struggling to survive”.

“It’s the only thing that’s going to deliver these dairy farmers a long-term viability in Australia,” Mr Hicks told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“Otherwise we could see businesses shutdown, and overseas interests take over”.

“We’re going to be really stuck for dairy products if we don’t have a Royal Commission”.

The by-election for Eden-Monaro will go down to the wire between Labor’s Kristy McBain and Liberal candidate Fiona Kotvojs according to polls, but preferences, especially from the Nationals, could play a defining role.

Mr Hicks said if he were elected he would be willing to cross the floor in order to push to get support for a Royal Commission.
