I move:

That the Senate notes:

(a) the approval of Port Alma as a live cattle export facility;

(b) the benefits of providing new export options to producers and the cattle industry in central Queensland;

(c) that in 2014-15, the live cattle export industry contributed $1.4 billion to Australia's economy; and

(d) that lowering transport costs, by providing local export options in addition to the highly important processing industry, will deliver better returns to central Queensland cattle producers by giving access to more markets.
