So we have Moss, we have Carter and both expose transparency issues which the Dept agree to fix but take a look at the ASEL Rejection Criteria Guidebook publication....calling for submissions but only if one is a) a Dept officer or b) an AAV. And if that's not the fox in the hen-house, there is no access to the proposed criteria guidelines because they are password protected!
VALE observed ship-loading for 18 months in Fremantle until the public were disallowed after the Farmer Review - we saw too much. During that time saw so many sheep trucked to port with rejection criteria and far fewer going back on rejection trucks than were arriving ie sheep with rejection criteria were being loaded on each shipment. Department Officers were there. AAVs were there. Rejection criteria were ignored but these personnel are now the only ones given a say in rejection criteria.
Biased and not transparent.....in fact less so than ever. How we have progressed.
VALE will apply for a password but we are not hopeful...
