LA­BELLING: Hin­kler MP Keith Pitt took to par­lia­ment this week to voice his con­tin­ued con­cerns about food la­belling in the wake of the Hep­ati­tis A out­break from im­ported frozen berries. Here’s part of what he said: “We place enor­mous red-tape bur­dens and cost pres­sures on our grow­ers to en­sure that Aus­tralian pro­duce is of the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dard,” he said. “Much of it is ex­ported over­seas. “I am tired of see­ing our grow­ers be­ing squeezed for ev­ery last cent, when over­seas grow­ers do not have to meet the same biose­cu­rity and health and safety stan­dards.” Where do you stand?
