Coastal Shipping

Mr RAMSEY (Grey) (20:50): Coastal shipping is an issue that I have raised on a number of occasions in this place.

Gene Technology Amendment Bill 2015

Mr RAMSEY (Grey) (12:49): I thank the member for Throsby for his support and that of the Labor Party for what are, essentially, a very minor raft of alterations to existing legislation.

National Broadband Network
