Foreign Investment in Agriculture

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House: concerns about the sale of rural land, farm land, and agricultural business to foreign investors.

We therefore ask the house to: keep Australian farm land and agricultural businesses in Australian ownership so Australians can continue to grow and export food. Farmland sold to foreigners who will grow their own crops and export them to their own countries, we will loose our valuable export trade.
