It’s great to see Andrew Wilkie tackling live export; so far he’s been the only non-Green pollie with the guts to do so. In a recent interview with Beef Central Mr Wilkie took aim at the systemic nature of the problem, and proposes to run another bill to wind up the trade over the next few years.
He’s also planning to take a trip on a live export voyage (if only a short-haul one between Australia and Indonesia), and is even plotting to do it on a ‘typical’ vessel of his choosing so that he’s seeing the real deal. We've offered to furnish Mr Wilkie with some questions to ask the exporters while he's onboard to ensure he is in a good position to assess the conditions on the voyage. Hopefully, this will be of assistance to him.
