26    Primary Industries—Queensland—Port Alma Live Cattle Export Facility

Senator Canavan, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 890—That the Senate notes:

    (a)   the approval of Port Alma as a live cattle export facility;

     (c)   that, in 2014-15, the live cattle export industry contributed $1.4 billion to Australia’s economy; and

    (d)   that lowering transport costs, by providing local export options in addition to the highly important processing industry, will deliver better returns to central Queensland cattle producers by giving access to more markets.
