Constituency question – Great South Coast Food and Fibre plan

My question is to the Minister for Regional Development in the other place, and I ask: how much money the Great South Coast Group food and fibre plan will receive from this year’s budget.

The food and fibre plan has been developed over many years in an effort to increase the output and value of the region’s existing and new food and fibre businesses, thus improving whole-of-region productivity, sustainability and prosperity. In the budget papers the plan was listed among regional partnerships priority projects. Regional partnerships have been allocated $29┬ámillion, but there is no breakdown of what will be spent on each project.

Minister, I would be appreciative, and so would the community, if you could tell us specifically how much money will be allocated to the Great South Coast food and fibre plan.
