Cattle Tick Motion
Cattle Tick Motion
To highlight the discontent of producers in my electorate, I
recently tabled a Notice of Motion, calling on the Legislative Assembly
to condemn the Carr Government and the Minister for Agriculture for their
failure to protect the NSW cattle Industry from ticks and for
contradicting advice given to producers, by representatives of NSW
Agriculture, at a public meeting in Casino late last year that producers
would not be charged for tickicide. I will continue to pursue an acceptable
outcome for the cattle producers in the tick quarantine area.
