Senate Inquiry into Third Party Certification

Please send a a letter with the Subject title "My Will - Senate Inquiry into Third party certification of food to the Prime Minister, your Federal MP and Senator Corey Bernardi concerning the government not acting on the 2015 Senate Inquiry into Third party certification of food.

Please use this “My Will” letter as a platform to write your own personal letter on the above issue and challenge why the government has not acted on the findings of the senate inquiry funded by tax payers.


To The Honourable Member

I know that it is my duty to keep you informed of MY WILL on anything that comes before Parliament, or should come before Parliament.

It is MY WILL that you take immediate action to act on the findings of the tax payer funded Senate inquiry into the Third party certification of food.

In your letter you may want to address the 7 recommendations below and add additional comment on the following: 


a. Inadequate labelling - All company’s products WILL show their symbol whether it is the halal or kosher RIGHT ON THE FRONT OF THE PACKAGE, in plain VIEW. Adding the halal symbol means that people can make an informed choice of what they buy.

b. Why are 98% of these companies hiding the fact that they pay thousands and thousands of dollars for a symbol and certificate.

c. Imposition of religion - Halal certification discriminates against other religions. Why is islam receiving funding from the purchase of food and now many areas not food related whilst the other major religions in this country aren’t

d. Mr Bernard Gaynor’s comments to the Senate inquiry, arguing that halal certification represents the imposition of sharia law on Australians: 
“Firstly, halal certification is viewed as a form of religious tax that funds the growth and spread of Islam in Australia, and that it is ultimately funded primarily by the non-Muslim majority of the population. Secondly, halal certification is seen as a way of imposing sharia law and Islamic religious beliefs on the majority of non-Muslim Australians every time they sit down to eat. Thirdly, halal certification causes concern, because it results in the embedding of an Islamic religious ritual in the food-production process of meat products. This necessarily results in discriminatory employment practices, and raises additional concerns about a loss of religious freedom”.

Recommendation 1 
a. The committee recommends that food manufacturers clearly label products which have received third party certification.

 

Recommendation 2 
3.59 The committee recommends that the government, through the Department of Agriculture, consider the monitoring and compliance of halal certification of meat for export; and becoming the sole signatory on the government halal certificate.

 

Recommendation 3 
3.60 The committee recommends that the government, through bilateral and multilateral forums, promote greater acceptance of a 'whole–of-country', government-led halal certification system.

 

Recommendation 4 
3.78 The committee recommends that the government consider requiring certification bodies to register their operations under certification trademarks.

 

Recommendation 5 
3.79 The committee recommends that the government consider requiring that halal certification of goods in the domestic market comply with the standard agreed for export.

 

Recommendation 6 
3.80 The committee recommends that the halal certification industry consider establishing a single halal certification authority and a single national registered certified trademark.

 

Recommendation 7 
3.96 The committee recommends that meat processors clearly label products sourced from animals subject to religious slaughter.

 

The 2016 election, with the election of four One Nation Senators should put ALL politicians on notice that the electorate is fed up with the way every day Australians are treated, whilst followers of the islamic religion (moslems) seem to be placed in a privileged position.

 

Halal certification discriminates against 96-98% of the country as it supports a 2-4% population funded by the majority of Australians. Halal certification should be abolished in Australia and until it is abolished, it is My Will that you and your political party act on the contents of this letter and the seven Recommendations from Senate inquiry into the Third party certification of food.

I await your response and thank you for your time and consideration.

 

Yours faithfully

Honourable Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull
PO Box 545, 
Edgecliff, 
NSW, 
2027

Dear Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull,

I know that it is my duty to keep you informed of MY WILL on anything that comes before Parliament, or should come before Parliament.

It is MY WILL that you take immediate action to act on the findings of the tax payer funded Senate inquiry into the Third party certification of food.


Recommendations from the third party food certification were handed down in December 2015, as yet these recommendations have been ignored. This inquiry had a record number of submissions because average Australians are not happy with the current system and want change implemented. The inquiry cost the tax payer tens of thousands of dollars therefore it is of priority that the recommendations be put into action immediately. 


This inquiry found that Halal certification is more about fundraising to further the cause of Islam than it is about dietary guidelines. I am appalled that my money may be used indirectly to fund an ideology that is a constant threat to Australia’s security and as a Christian it is against my religion to partake of meat that is sacrificed to a false God. At present many items are either not marked Halal or it is very difficult to see on the packaging. This current system removes my choice and it is an absolute violation of my most basic freedoms.


The recommendations propose that there be one government, governing body overseeing Halal certification in Australia and any profits raised are only to be used to cover costs. This is of top priority as transparency is a must and this would ensure that Halal no longer be a money making scheme but simply a service to the public.


I await your response and thank you for your time and consideration.

 

Yours faithfully,

Your signature
