FEDERAL Independent MP Bob Katter yesterday introduced legislation aimed to preventing the sale of Cubbie Station to foreign interests.
Mr Katter's Bill prohibits the sale of a controlling share of Cubbie to foreign persons, or if sold, for the share to be disposed of to somebody approved by the Treasurer.
He said the government was intent on selling out the Australian people, raising the similarities between the recent Ord irrigation land sale and that of Cubbie Station.
“They won’t give Australian farmers a single cent and yet will deliver to a foreign corporation a $600m subsidy," he said.
“Do they want us to be a nation of serfs working for foreign landlords?”
