Please note:
The Senate handed down their seven recommendations to the Ministers on 1 December 2015. No action has been taken by the government to date.  On speaking to Minister Barnaby Joyce's staff today, we were advised the response time is between 3 months and 3 years 

80% of all senate recommendations don't get implemented by the Government.

 

  • The Third Party Food Labeling Senate Enquiry cost taxpayers huge amounts of money.

  • This enquiry MUST result in action by the government.

  • It is a waste of taxpayers money and a betrayal of the will of the people when the government ignores their concerns.


Please use the flyer and letter-box, hand out to friends and family and share with others

Dear Minister Joyce

 

Re: Economic References Committee - Third Party Certification of Food, December 2015

This above committee was responsible for investigating the labeling of ALLfood products and in particular ' Halal Certification' of products, including food, packaging, personal hygiene and animal feed. 

The Review Committee made seven recommendations. Details can be found in the link below:
https://gallery.mailchimp.com/71d3344ff85d55de43dca7d3f/files/Senate_Review_Committee_into_food_labelling_halal_certification.pdf

Can you please advise which of these recommendations your department has acted on, and if not when the Australian public can expect to see changes to the labeling of all Halal Certified goods to give consumers a choice. 

The Australian public need to have confidence that the Government is working to protect the rights of ALL Australians, with the exclusion of none. Halal Certification is NOT required or wanted by non-Muslims who represent the majority of the Australian population.


Yours sincerely
