THE WEEKLY TIMES | ‘Extremely angry’: Growers vow to fight biosecurity levy

A peak grain lobby group has vowed to fight against the federal government’s proposed new biosecurity protection levy.

Grain Producers Australia chairman and Western Australian grain producer Barry Large said growers were “extremely angry and irritated” about the new 10 per cent impost, which was due to come in from July 1 next year.

GPA released the results of a survey on Monday, which found that out of 140 Australian growers who responded to the survey request, 84 per cent (116) didn’t agree with paying the new levy, 13 per cent (18) said they wanted more details, while 4 per cent (5) supported the levy.
