The children of farmers

Mr Amato raises the issue of the psychological impact farm trespass has on children.

Ms Johnson says the impact continues to follow the children for their whole lives due to a digital footprint being left online. She says that it limits how young farmers can engage with the community and develop constructive relationships.

Ms Hurst raises that this Bill doesn't impact on digital trespass, however Ms Johnson says that this is only the first step and they plan to pursue digital trespass in future. She raises the issue of drones saying that they are used for "casing the farm".

Mr Amato questions if children feel unsafe on school buses and within the community. Ms Johnson says that there is not evidence of this that they have found, however Mr Arkle says that there are concerns about the distance between rural families and law enforcement.
