The State and Federal Labor Governments have confirmed that they will bow down to the United Nations at the cost of Queensland’s agricultural industry following the release of the most recent UNESCO report recommending that the Great Barrier Reef (“GBR”) be added to the ‘in danger’ list.
KENNEDY MP Bob Katter has called on the Federal Government to introduce a suite of laws to provide food security in Australia for both farmers and customers as living costs cripple family budgets.
Katter’s Australian Party MPs have launched an appeal to both the Queensland and Federal Governments for a $20 million annual commitment to go towards a feral pig eradication fund in response to the growing threats posed by the five million-plus wild pigs in North and Far North Queensland.
AUSTRALIAN farmers already suffering from worker shortages will be dealt a major blow after the Federal Government moved to remove important labour requirements that obliged backpackers to serve time in rural and regional areas.
The in-decline farming industry and small businesses need to be protected and therefore excluded from the legislative ambit of the Federal Government’s Secure Jobs, Better Pay Bill, Kennedy MP Bob Katter says.
