It's a bit of a stretch to suggest that a minor tariff paid by the beneficiaries of better biosecurity will "totally stuff up our fresh produce producers". On the contrary, some of the more forward-thinking producer bodies are in favour of such a move, as it guarantees them a role in determining what biosecurity measures are necessary and how these should best be delivered.OK, time out is complete.
Next whine is , I recently saw a program which said the govt is going to tax fresh produce growers in Australia so they can have more security on imported products . Are you F kidding me? We have more food than we can use and yet, we are determined, ( the govt that is) to totally stuff up our fresh produce producers.
This topic was already discussed here:Well , according to sbs news, WA Farmers will now have to Negotiate a Permit with the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act , if they intend to disturb the earth to a depth more than 50mm.
So where does that leave the prospector with or without a lease? Mackka
