Spencer gets day in court

PETER SPENCER, the farmer who went on a hunger strike for 52 days in protest against the Rudd Government locking up his farm to gain carbon credits, is finally having his case heard in the High Court in Canberra.

However, Mr Spencer has organised to drive directly from Canberra to the Northern Rivers to attend Primex, the agricultural exhibition at Casino this Saturday.

Mr Spencer will make contact with local and interstate exhibitors and later make a presentation at the Casino RSM Club at 7pm. He will follow that up with an information session at Bangalow on Sunday from 1pm at the bowls club.

The Full Bench of the High Court has allowed the NSW Farmers' Association's application to intervene in the Spencer V Commonwealth case, being heard today in Canberra.

NSW Farmers' Association president Charles Armstrong said this was a test case for all Australian farmers.

The NSW Farmer's Association has provided significant financial support for Peter Spencer's High Court legal challenge, directly and through the Australian Farmers' Fighting Fund.
