Country Hour for Tuesday 27 June, 2017



Today on the Country Hour: The Federal government announces a 50 per cent increase in the data allowance for those accessing the internet via satellite during peak periods and a doubling off the off-peak allowance; the battle over the future of the New Hope coal in southern Queensland only seems to be intensifying as a final resolution on the mine's expansion plans gets closer and today protestors in favour of the mine demonstrate in Toowoomba; the senate whitespot inquiry hears from prawn farmers and fishers, DAFF and bait companies as it explores the disease outbreak and the future of prawn imports; size does matter when it comes to bananas and what consumers want to buy in the supermarket; indigenous communities have their say on the Murray Darling Basin Plan as it affects cultural heritage and the need for economic development and we visit a mango orchard full of cows.
