Australia - hands tied over barley marketing
ABC News, May 27, 2004
South Australian Agriculture Minister Rory McEwen says he has no choice but to change the single desk barley marketing system, or hit farmers with a levy, to avoid losing competition payments.

The Opposition says it will block any legislative change to the barley single desk at least until after the 2004 harvest.

But Mr McEwen says he has to act before the end of the financial year, or the Federal Government will take away another $3 million in national competition payments.

"I have to do something now, if I don't do something now, what the Liberals are saying is they want us again to take a $3 million hit on our budget, now rushing into it, I have to do this ahead of this penalty becoming permanent," he said.

"My time-line is dictated by when the Federal Treasurer is going to whack us another $3 million."
