AUSTRALIAN RURAL & REGIONAL NEWS | 50 groups unite to scrap biosecurity tax: GPA

50 Australian agricultural producer representative groups have unified to send a powerful, collective message to the Federal Government about their strong opposition to the proposed 10 per cent biosecurity tax.

These groups represent the views of tens of thousands of Australian agricultural producers across the full spectrum of farm commodities including grains, livestock, horticulture, dairy, forestry, seafood, etc.

A joint letter sent to the Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, is calling for an immediate and urgent reversal of the fundamentally flawed tax on producers that’s due to be implemented by 1 July 2024.

Grain Producers Australia has also co-signed the letter – which includes Federal Treasurer, Jim Chalmers, and Agriculture Minister, Murray Watt – in backing action to address major policy flaws and inequities.
