West hits out at DAFWA cuts

Hale, R. (2014) West hits out at DAFWA cuts. Countryman, 13 February 2014. p. 11 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Article discusses Western Australian agriculture and food parliamentary secretary Darren West claims that massive cuts to the Department of Agriculture and Food are to blame for lack of progress in tackling salinity problems.
Under the Barnett Government, DAFWA's resources have been slashed.
Mr. West made the comments while addressing members of WISALTS at its annual general meeting, in response to calls from members for the department to work more closely with farmers to tackle salinity.
WISALTS was started by Harry Whittington, a Brookton farmer who promoted the interceptor bank systems after recommendations by the Agriculture Department did not work.

This article contains one photograph of Darren West shaking the hand of WISALTS president, Noel Powell.
