Government ‘quietly removed’ the proposed tax on farmers

Sky News host Caleb Bond that in the federal budget last year, the government announced they were going to “put a levy on farmers”.

Mr Bond said the tax on Australian farmers was so that the government could “pay for foreign food” being brought into the country to be screened.

“They have very quietly done away with this proposed levy now.

“I can’t believe it was a thing in the first place.

“I’d never heard of it, so very clearly it was very quietly introduced and now it’s very quietly removed.”
