Responded By: Hon Tim Mulherin MP on 23/12/2009

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House to the possible closure of the Australian Agricultural College Corporation Burdekin Campus. Your petitioners therefore request the House to strenuously oppose any downgrading or closure of the Burdekin Campus, Northern Australia's only such institution, and strongly recommend it revert to its original charter in the provision of basic technical and practical training for post Year 10 students in relevant tropical crops and livestock production. In support of this objective it is essential that the college be managed by a board made up of practical primary industry representatives and key government agencies.
