The next Senate Standing Committee on Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport Inquiry into the Wine Industry public hearing in the Swan Valley on October 27 and WFA will be giving evidence. They have attended the previous two hearings to listen first-hand to the issues raised and meet with members of industry. If you would like to follow proceedings, a live audio feed can be accessed via the Parliament House website. Please visit www.aph.gov.au on the day and select “Watch Parliament” from the grey tabs that appear in the top third of the page. Hansard transcripts are usually available a few days after each hearing here. I will advise of any developments.
