Description

  • <p class="speaker">Mehreen Faruqi</p>
  • <p>I move:</p>
  • <p class="italic">That the Senate calls on the Federal Government to amend the <i>Australian Meat and Live-stock Industry Act 1997</i>, the <i>Export Control Act 1982 </i>and the proposed <i>Export Control Act 2018 </i>to restrict the long haul export of live sheep and lambs during the northern hemisphere summer months of July, August or September in a five year transitional period, or at any time after that period, where the voyage is by ship and of duration exceeding 10 days, and where a place in that voyage is either the Persian Gulf or the Red Sea (regardless of whether it is the final destination).</p>
  • The majority voted against a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/senate/?id=2019-10-17.95.1) introduced by NSW Senator [Mehreen Faruqi](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/senate/nsw/mehreen_faruqi), which means it failed.
