Responded By: Hon Leanne Donaldson MP on 13/04/2016

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is considering reducing the size of the Queensland Cattle Tick Free Zone by placing whole or part of the cattle tick control area within Taroom, Wandoan and Auburn areas into the Cattle Tick Infested Area under the new Biosecurity Bill. This area was cleared of ticks with Government Support in the 1990s at considerable cost and effort by producers.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to direct that the cattle tick control area referred to be included, in its entirely, in the Queensland Cattle Tick Free Zone under the new Biosecurity Bill.
