The Department of Agriculture admitted it had wrongly issued a permit to the controversial live exporter Emanuel Exports. The department, invariably described by Littleproud as the "independent regulator", is already the subject of a major review over its past regulation of the live export trade, admitted its error in court documents filed in response to a case brought by Animals Australia.
However, one has to ask the question was it easier to roll over and admit an administrative error than have evidence produced in court which would show up their "cowboy culture" to a much greater degree.
