(b) Government intervention is needed to save our dairy sector and our dairy farmers; and

(2) therefore, calls on the Government to task the ACCC with testing the efficacy of a minimum farm gate milk price and to make recommendations on the best design options.

How "never voted" is worked out

Normally a person's votes count towards a score which is used to work out a simple phrase to summarise their position on a policy. However in this case Russell Broadbent was absent during all divisions for this policy. So, it's impossible to say anything concrete other than that they have "never voted" on this policy.
