PGA SAYS NATIONALS WRONG ON SALE OF FREMANTLE PORT

2016-03-24

As Western Australia’s oldest, largest and only state wide organisation representing pastoralists, graziers and grain growers; the Pastoralists and Graziers Association of WA (PGA) is concerned over the decision, by the Nationals WA, to block the sale of Fremantle Port.

 

“The PGA has been a strong advocate for live export to be moved to the outer harbour for over 20 years and it is most disappointing to see Terry Redman’s Nationals blocking this sale and jeopardising the livelihoods of farming and pastoral families,” PGA President Tony Seabrook said.

 

“Premier Colin Barnett has assured that one of the conditions of the sale of the port is the development of a new live export facility in the outer harbour, which will provide much needed surety for the live export industry.”

 

“In light of the Nationals’ decision to not support the sale, a decision which goes against the interests of their regional constituents, this will not be possible,” he said.

 

“The National Party needs to reconsider their position for the benefit of WA agriculture and support the sale of Fremantle Port “
