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.
(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.
