Andrew Constance responds to Luke Foley’s Attack On Local Oyster Industry

In a media release issued today Member for Bega, Andrew Constance, opened with "Mr Foley was too gutless to meet with local oyster farmers from places such as Batemans Bay and Narooma today to discuss the benefits of the investment being made into the local industry."

"This investment is designed to bolster the region’s produce in markets both nationally and elsewhere and at the same time generate industry jobs.

"Whilst I have met with those farmers not associated with Australia’s Oyster Coast and have a number of issues that are being followed through with relevant Ministers, I believe Mr Foley and the political staffer running as his local candidate would be best to not use the oyster industry as a political football.

"I would remind Mr Foley that the decision around this investment was made at arm’s length of government, as stated by the Deputy Premier.

"The reason for this is due to Labor’s failings and illegal dodgy deals, which has landed more than one of your Labor mates in prison.

"I see no plan or policy from the Labor staffer and Mr Foley certainly has no plans for Regional NSW.

"Mr Foley can’t be trusted, his candidate cannot be trusted.

"Scaremongering, lying and downgrading our region and our industries is the only thing Labor seems good at.

"Mr Foley, before you come into our region spreading your lies, you might want to do your own due diligence and actually look at the real issues facing regional NSW, not grandstand on matters you know very little about."
