Stop the Noosa Slaughterhouse and Veal Industry

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Richard Allport
Unit 2H 7/9 Ernharley Drive

Total Signatures - 2216

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 9/03/2018

Closing Date: 1/09/2018

Tabled Date: 4/09/2018

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 4/10/2018

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the Noosa Council's decision to award a grant to Country Noosa to reopen the Eumundi Slaughterhouse to create "a bird to beast abattoir" while developing a local veal industry. Queenslanders, especially Noosa and Sunshine Coast residents, object to a new slaughterhouse due to the health and environmental implications affecting human and non-human animals. Furthermore, veal ("yearling beef") is an inherently cruel industry and is at odds with the expectations of the community.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to prevent the development of a Queensland veal industry and the opening of the Sunshine Coast "bird to beast" abattoir.
