Grain Marketing Amendment Bill 1997

Bill No.50

The purpose of this Bill is to make significant amendments to the Grain Marketing Act 1975. The major achievement of the Bill is the deregulation of the domestic market for prescribed grains. Exports of value added prescribed grains will also be deregulated. In addition, the Bill removes linseed from the list of prescribed grains. It also allows for an additional ministerially appointed Grain Pool Board member. Other provisions relate to improving accountability to growers and government. The Bill reinforces the Grain Pool’s position as the sole exporter of prescribed grains produced in the State.
