I congratulate Stewart Hosie on making a powerful case on behalf of his constituents-along with the interventions from his colleagues-about the impact that people living in remote rural areas can feel as fuel prices go up.

I might represent an urban seat, but as a Member of Parliament in the south-west I am very much aware of the issues that are faced.
