RGA calls for commitment on MDBA relocation

12 May 2016 11:13 AM -
The Ricegrowers' Association of Australia (RGA) has called for both major parties to commit to moving MDBA functions out of Canberra if they win the federal election.

RGA President Jeremy Morton said that the current decentralisation agenda should focus on the most obvious government agency - the MDBA.

"We've seen a number of government agencies slated for relocation out of Canberra over the last year, including three research and development corporations and the APVMA. The glaring omission in these discussions is the MDBA."
