I take Phasing out as a Yes and it will go through parliament as legislation, I take not in the term of this Government as a No and we might think about it if you elect us again.
I believe Libs 2IC Susan Ley would have supported the proposal as she was keen to support the idea a while back.
Happy to concede I am a meat eater but I wont eat meat that comes from known inhumane treatment sources or where baby animals eg Lambs, Veal or young Pigs are slaughtered. The thought of sheep being thrown into live mincers or some asian slaughterhouse beating cattle heads in with Sledgehammers makes me want to do same to the perpetrators so for me I'd like to see some bipartisan agreement reached where proper standards both here and for export are adopted.
As I said I enjoy my rib eye/scotch fillet and a parma but I want my Aus animals treated properly in the process...
Well said, EB1. Same page.
I feel very fortunate to live in an area (Gippsland) where I can go to the local butcher and get locally grown grass fed rib eye and scotch fillet, but very importantly... I know the beasts have been raised well and their demise is without suffering or inhuman treatment. Likewise, I wouldn't touch any meat knowing that the beast was ill-treated. I hope it is a 'quick' phase out.
