Isaac Mayor Anne Baker staggered as 18 month senate inquiry gets flick-passed to the Productivity Commission

18 months ago when a Senate Inquiry was announced into price gouging by airlines in regional Australia, Isaac Regional Council and the community felt that finally there might be a way forward.

Instead, yesterday the Senate Committee announced that regional airlines had been cleared of price gouging - and have folded up and passed the matter onto the Productivity Commission for further investigation.

I spoke to Isaac Mayor Anne Baker who is staggered at the snub.

Anne's biggest problem is that the core issue in the Senate Inquiry - wasn't addressed - hence my "Yes Minister" comment.
