Target: Federal Parliament
Region: Australia

Petition Background (Preamble):

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives:

The Petition of the undersigned draws the attention of the House:

to the significant community concern about the risk to national food security, and national security generally, posed by acquisitions by foreign entities of Australian agricultural, horticultural and other farming land.

Petition:

We therefore ask the House to :

(1) commit to the Australian people to prevent foreign government backed consortia and other similar foreign state-related entities from purchasing freehold title in Australian farmland; and

(2) amend the Foreign Acquisition and Takeovers Act and related policies of the Foreign Investment Review Board to give effect to that commitment.

Principal Petitioner: Hon Robert Brokenshire MLC, Parliament House, North Terrace, Adelaide SA 5000
