Australian Conservatives' policy adopted by Labor

February 23, 2018

Australian Conservatives MLC Robert Brokenshire says Labor has adopted the Australian Conservatives policy to compensate farmers who have mineral deposits discovered and mined under their land.

The Barossa Herald reports the Weatherill government says farmers will receive a 10 per cent share of royalties generated if it is re-elected on March 17.

Mr Brokenshire says he has been arguing in favour of “royalties for regions” for nine years, and that he wants a higher rate of return to communities set at 35 per cent.

The Liberals and SA Best all have versions of the policy but the Australian Conservatives are advocating for a greater return to farmers than all other parties.
