Ex­port re­view

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Ag Life -

Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter David Lit­tleproud has an­nounced terms of ref­er­ence for a ‘short, sharp’ re­view into sheep ex­ports to the Middle East dur­ing the north­ern sum­mer.

Min­is­ter Lit­tleproud said the re­view would con­sider in­for­ma­tion in­clud­ing sci­en­tific lit­er­a­ture, out­comes of re­cent voy­ages and re­ports from ob­servers.

“The footage I saw re­cently from voy­ages in 2017 shocked me,” he said.

“Af­ter meet­ing with the stake­hold­ers I an­nounced this re­view.

“The re­view will iden­tify any im­prove­ments in how the cur­rent stan­dards, known as the Aus­tralian Stan­dards for Ex­port of Live­stock or ASEL, can be ad­min­is­tered or ex­e­cuted.”

He said the re­view would be com­plete in time to make any rec­om­mended changes to the 2018 north­ern sum­mer trade.
