snap review of sheep export standards to middle east revealed
As rural Liberal Party MP Susen Leigh broke the ranks of the Alliance policy and followed the green environmental policy, asking for an end date for a complete ban on live sheep exports, starting with sheep trade, in the Middle East summer, minister of Agriculture David Litle is proud to announce a \"brief, sharp review\" of sheep export standards \".
His latest response was that the ongoing impact of video images shipped from a number of sheep in Washington state to the Middle East over the weekend exposed animal welfare, what Mr litle proudly calls \"nonsense\" is unacceptable to Australian farmers and the public.
WA-based Emanuel export company was in the main FireWire in a particular shipment in last August, and 2400 sheep died due to high temperature pressure, which also caused other forms of suffering and evidence.
Mr Littleproud\'s Department has reviewed the incident because it violates the accepted 2% mortality rate and the Australian Maritime Safety Agency has also reviewed the incident, both of which have cleared exporters
But the video footage does not violate the current rules.

Mr. littlepride said that the snap review is expected to take four weeks in order to take action on any proposals before sheep are sent to the Middle East summer from the Australian winter.
Such inspections, he said, would \"be full of confidence in these ships and the standards of these sheep going to the Middle East \".
Mr. Littleproud said he asked the doctor Michael McCarthy-a pre-

This review was conducted.
\"I spoke to Dr. McCarthy and he is confident that, thanks to his experience and research in the industry, he will be able to do the work within time frame,\" he said . \".
\"We have to take decisive action because it is about the livelihoods of farmers and their families.
\"It would be great if the on-site export industry was leading on this issue and had taken strong action by the time this review came back.
\"I would if I had to kick them out and scream, but I would prefer that they lead the Australian people and prove to them that they are serious about cultural change.
Tony York, president of WAFarmers, welcomed the review and said that many producers \"feel very strongly\" that a ship should not be allowed to sail with livestock if conditions cannot be managed
\"We welcome any comments and announcements of changes that support this condition, which will restore confidence in the industry,\" he said . \".
\"We hope that exporters can demonstrate that this loss of livestock will never happen again, and ask for a collaborative and transparent review system, including information that exporters have posted on all navigation and vessels in the last few years, in order to be clearly identified in high-risk periods such as the Northern Hemisphere summer.
\"In addition, we require independent inspectors, including independent veterinarians, to board the ship during the voyage to monitor the condition of livestock.
\"As producers, we have the right to demand that this be done and it is the responsibility of the government, exporters and carriers to adhere to those requirements.
\"Mr. Litel\'s department of pride has implemented stricter animal welfare standards for about 57,000 sheep exported by Emanuel, which will leave Fremantle this week, including increased ventilation and independent observers, they will be asked to produce daily reports including images. such as a re-

Mr. littlepride announced that he also intended to work with the Labor Party to pass a bill currently before Parliament to increase penalties for those who did something wrong.
He said he personally wanted to see the directors of the company take more personal responsibility for doing things wrong, such as \"facing huge fines and possible imprisonment \".
\"They should not hide behind the company and the shelf company,\" he said . \".
However, after 60 minutes of broadcasting, this political action is not enough to stop the tide of criticism, because perennial opponents like the Australian Greens and RSPCA have made strategic and export to Australian animals;
Although animal welfare standards and results have been significantly improved recently due to regulatory actions and industry initiatives.
Green party leader Richard Di natalai said the review proposed by Mr litle pride in response to the new revelations of \"terrible conditions\" in the field export industry \"is just more smoke and mirrors\"
He said that only an immediate transition from the export of living things can \"stop the unnecessary suffering experienced by thousands of innocent animals \".
\"We already have enough comments about this terrible industry,\" he said . \".
Her view is due to the frustration of exporters with the delivery of live sheep to the Middle East, which dates back to the events of the 2003 s when former Prime Minister John Howard and then Minister of Agriculture Warren Teras involved Cormo Express.
The shipment was rejected by Saudi Arabia\'s scheduled market and has been stranded at sea for a long time, killing thousands of sheep and triggering parliamentary investigations, leading to the implementation of some reforms.
\"Since then, we \'ve got the commitments-so I \'ve been listening to them all the way through my tenure as a member of parliament, and I \'ve heard enough, and actually I don\'t trust the exporter, she said.
\"The supply chain seems to always produce these types of events, because there are so many opportunities for the industry to clean up its behavior, and I don\'t even know if it is possible to clean up their behavior actions.
\"I am satisfied with the steps taken by the Minister of Agriculture, which are sensible (

But I will go further and set a date before which we will announce with industry, farmers, not to cut anyone\'s knees in terms of their business ventures and investments --
Do it well
In fact, we will become a country that no longer has live exports.
\"I appreciate that everyone may not necessarily share this view, but it is a prudent and honest way forward --
But this is how I look because I have been living on this issue for a long time.
\"These ships are leaving the Australian coast and we cannot give up our responsibility as a nation for what has apparently happened to them for a long time.
\"I think, as a country, we need to say that we are going to stop on-site exports altogether-not here, season, up, down (but)
