WESTERN Australian parliamentarians have met with Kalangadoo farmer and amateur filmmaker David Smith as they continue to shape their policy around the controversial unconventional gas industry.

Mr Smith – who self-funded the Pipe Dreams Fractured Lives documentary – was in Perth last week at the invitation of Member for Kalamunda Matthew Hughes to meet with around 10 state bureaucrats, with the visit coinciding with the Ban Fracking in WA rally at Parliament House.

Mr Hughes is currently campaigning for a state-wide ban on hydraulic fracture stimulation
