If you support this bill, you will be throwing people out of work, pandering to the anti-animal farming … lobby, assisting the supermarkets to push farmers out of business and making it difficult for free range egg farmers to provide the consumer with the product they expect.

That is from the national president of the Free Range Egg and Poultry Association.

Ms Hunter: Mr Speaker, I was just wondering if Mrs Dunne could table the letter that she is referring to.

MRS DUNNE: I would have to print it off, Mr Speaker. I am very happy to do that, but I was actually reading it from the screen.

MR SPEAKER: One of the joys of laptops.

MRS DUNNE: Yes, sorry. I would have to print it off. But I am happy to provide it to members later.

Ms Hunter: Now would be good.

MR SPEAKER: Mrs Dunne, can you arrange to complete that? This is a matter with laptops that we are going to have to consider. Perhaps we can take that to the admin and procedures committee.

MRS DUNNE: Yes, okay. I undertake by close of business today to table this letter in the Assembly.
