Legislative Council: Tuesday, August 29, 2023


Sheep and Goat Electronic Identification

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:46): Supplementary, Mr President.

The PRESIDENT: I will listen to a different supplementary question, Leader of the Opposition.

Members interjecting:


The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI: Given that the majority of lambing is occurring as we speak, or has just occurred in this state, why hasn't the minister released any details about how sheep producers will be able to access subsidised tags for when they need to tag their lambs in the coming weeks?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:47): When I commenced my first answer I said that I hoped the honourable member would listen to the answer, but it seems she didn't. My department has been working through with industry. There will be a rebate for those who have already purchased tags.
