FARM ONLINE | Ag groups united to pen letter opposing biosecurity levy

MORE than 50 agricultural producer representative groups across sectors as diverse as grains and livestock through to aquaculture and horticulture have penned an open letter to the Federal Government voicing their opposition to the proposed 10 per cent biosecurity tax.

The government has proposed what it describes as a levy on the ag sector to raise further funds for biosecurity.

The agricultural sector has been deeply unimpressed by the move, saying that with the levies raised going into consolidated revenue rather than a specific biosecurity fund it amounted to little more than a new tax.
