Cattlemen welcome NT Government decision on Non Pastoral Use permit changes

The Northern Territory Cattlemen’s Association said the decision not to proceed with changes to the non pastoral use permit system in the Pastoral Lands Act was a sensible policy outcome. NTCA chief executive officer Ashley Manicaros said the cattle industry believed the proposed changes would stifle economic investment if they proceeded. “Good policy should be driven by solid economic foundations especially when it comes to a desire to diversify an economy,” Mr Manicaros said. “At this point the changes will not proceed. We can now get on with the job of creating even more jobs in the $1.2 billion cattle industry free of any immediate excess red tape.”
