ALEC, CCA and NFF will conduct a press conference regarding this at Parliament House this morning.

Date: Monday 6 May 2013
Time: 10:45am
Location: Senate Courtyard, Parliament House, Canberra

Alison Penfold, Australian Livestock Exporters' Council, Matt Linnegar, National Farmers' Federation and Jed Matz, Cattle Council of Australia will be available for questions.
