Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

YOUR ed­i­to­rial in last week’s edi­tion that ques­tioned Pauline Han­son’s abil­ity to cope in Par­lia­ment was ably an­swered last Monday on the ABC’s Q&A pro­gram when she ad­vised that she had al­ready made ar­range­ments with Govern­ment as­sis­tance to be briefed di­rectly by Trea­sury on mat­ters con­fronting the Par­lia­ment.

More­over, her pur­pose was to cre­ate jobs, which she also ac­cused the Greens mem­ber present of op­pos­ing.

This brings me to the stan­dard let­ter in the same edi­tion of crit­i­cism by Krista Price op­pos­ing live an­i­mal ex­ports.

For her in­for­ma­tion, a new cat­tle meat works has re­cently com­menced oper­a­tion in the Kim­ber­ley and I would not be sur­prised if, as con­sis­tent with our south­ern works, the op­er­a­tors must rely upon 457 visa-im­ported work­ers due to the re­luc­tance of Aus­tralians to un­der­take this em­ploy­ment.

Fur­ther­more, north­west range cat­tle re­quire lot feed­ing, for which lit­tle fod­der is pro­duced in that re­gion.

I fur­ther note of re­ports that In­dian meat works are com­menc­ing to ex­port frozen buf­falo meat to In­done­sia but men­tion­ing that In­done­sians will first have to ad­just to this type of meat, es­pe­cially where ad­e­quate re­frig­er­a­tion is nonex­is­tent.

The cru­elty filmed re­cently can be eas­ily cor­rected by the in­stal­la­tion in Asian meat works of a sim­ple race and an­i­mal crush so the an­i­mal is con­strained to al­low ef­fi­cient and hu­mane con­cussing as a pre­req­ui­site to slaugh­ter, ei­ther of which would be prac­tised in the Aus­tralian meat works to which Ms Price refers.
