Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon. The motion was:

"That the Australian Meat and Live-stock Industry (Export of Live-stock to Egypt) Repeal Order 2014, made under section 17 of the Australian Meat and Live-stock Industry Act 1997, be disallowed."

Senator Rhiannon explained that this Order "undoes the 2008 prohibition on exporting live sheep to Egypt" and should be disallowed because it "takes a backward step on the conditions that cover the handling of these animals in Egypt".(Read Senator Rhiannon's full explanation of her motion here.)

Because this motion was unsuccessful, the Order was not disallowed and remained in force.
