PGA Applauds Premier Mark McGowan

2018-05-07

 

PGA President, Tony Seabrook today applauded the announcement by Premier, Mark McGowan in support of the live sheep export industry.

“Mr McGowan has shown real leadership in calling on industry to fix the problem rather than supporting the radical approach of banning all live sheep exports” Mr Seabrook said.

“This industry is worth over $250 million to Western Australian producers and the cessation of the trade would have repercussions all the way from the waterfront to the bush.”

Mr Seabrook said “I look forward to the McCarthy report being released on Friday and working with Government and Exporters to make the industry stronger in the future."

“The PGA agrees with the Premier that we need to try to fix the problems rather than close the industry down,” Mr Seabrook said.
