Draft Recommendations From Callinan EI Inquiry
Meanwhile Justice Ian Callinan released a series of draft recommendations for discussion as part of his Equine Influenza inquiry. They include an overhaul of quarantine stations, a ban on horse imports through Melbourne airport until new facilities are built & the appointment of an Inspector-General Of Horse Importation. NSW Primary Industries Minister Ian Macdonald responded: "We need to fix up these facilities: they must be fool-proof. We will be in discussions with the Commonwealth to make sure this happens. We can't have another damaging outbreak of exotic disease." Submissions to the Callinan Inquiry are due to close on March 17.
