BEEF INDUSTRY CHANGES

14 August 2000

National Party Member for Lismore, Thomas George, today reaffirmed his commitment to continue to seek industry changes in support of concerns expressed to him by the Northern Rivers Community Policy Reviewers (NRCPR).

The concerns raised include AQIS charges, producer levies, cow beef labelling, future of Australian owned abattoirs, effects of GST, workers compensation, payroll tax and MLA concerns.

"However, to achieve the desired results we need the support of a whole industry approach," Mr George concluded.
