‘You pay for it’: Joyce criticizes farm restrictions

National Party MP Barnaby Joyce responded to Environment Minister Tanja Pliebersek’s statement on the state of the environment on Tuesday after she mentioned his name when discussing the previous government’s approach to the environment.

“We know how it all ends, it becomes another warning that is being foisted on private assets under the guise of protecting the environment,” he told Sky News anchor Corey Bernardi.

“Every time you impose additional restrictions on agriculture, you reduce food supplies and pay for it.

“After all, you pay for it.”
