REPORT OF PROCEEDINGS BEFORE STANDING COMMITTEE ON STATE DEVELOPMENT
INQUIRY INTO THE USE AND MANAGEMENT OF PESTICIDES IN NEW SOUTH WALES
At Lismore on Wednesday 4 August 1999
p 319/320 Mrs VAIL:
The Hon. J. R. JOHNSON: Are there bananas at Yelgun, Billinudgel, Byron Bay and Stokers Siding?
Mrs VAIL: Yes.
The Hon. J. R. JOHNSON: Is there aerial spraying of those bananas?
Mrs VAIL: Yes.
The Hon. J. R. JOHNSON: Do you have complaints from that area to your body?
Mrs VAIL: Yes.
The Hon. J. R. JOHNSON: From all of those areas?
Mrs VAIL: Not the Stokers Siding area. I am not very familiar with Stokers Siding. I mean, I know Stokers Siding, but I am not very familiar with the topography there and where
the bananas are there. I do know that the other place that they have a lot of trouble with is up on the Gold Coast, at Bilambil. A lot of them complain.
The Hon. J. R. JOHNSON: Bilambil is in New South Wales.
Mrs VAIL: Yes.
