After a meeting with growers in Perth, Federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud was unable to say whether Emanuel Exports would be given the right to export again according to Perth Now.
“That’s a matter for the independent regulator,” he said.
“They are facing serious matters.”
WA Farmers president Tony York apparently said it was “50/50” as to whether Emanuel Exports would be allowed to continue to trade.
“The minister made the point that suspension is a very serious step for the regulator to take so you can infer from that that it is serious,” he said.
“I would infer from that there’s no guarantee one way or the other.”
