Just don't stop at these articles what about Baby Formulas and the like.,unless you are a trading company registered and the like backyard money launders should be fined /jailed or deported .FULL STOP .

Just shut down this business for any Australian good infant formula powder milk etc shut it down

funny how this comes up after andrew forrest buys 160 million bucks worth today

I guess a bit like cracking down on fuel price gouging that has been going on for many years and still goes on. Much talk, no resulting action. Some of our politicians speak much and achieve little and I am definitely not suggesting that Rick Wilson is one of those.

Yessss !

Could have just handed down a directive ... placed restrictions. This is show boating.

It’s a bit late they all went to China in December and January and I’ve just seen on the news less than five minutes ago where our own health workers are getting the virus because they have inadequate protection

Thanks for acting on this

They just need to stop all of the products being sent to China that are not sent direct from the manufacturer on an actual Tax Invoice with proper Government Seals in the containers after they have been checked and verified as being correct. Time to cut this life blood off.

Wonderful news!

I said thanks from the start. About time

Bit late. But better late than never! Good to see something is finally done. Hopefully you do the same with everything else being exported out of this country by people that clear our supermarket shelves.

Great news - were these siezed goods bound for PRC. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Great news. Time has come where we need it here. Would love to see more ""made in Australia "" after all this is over and We will get through.

Yes!!!

Better late than never 👍

About bloody time!

Does this include price gouging by the supermarkets? Terrible to be exploiting the public esp at present when many can least afford it

Way too little way to late! Don’t believe a word our government says they have been asleep at the wheel far too long. They promise the world & deliver NOTHING!

Great. While at it, let’s stop supporting Chinese import by buying more expensive but safer and more worthwhile home produce.

How about adding baby milk powder.

About a month late starting.

About time.

Rick Wilson👍🏻 Thank goodness 😅, Esperance people have been wondering where you are???

We have to be patient. Scomo & co are really trying to cover all bases & there’s a bucket load of them ! 😇

Thank you! This is a huge benefit for a lot of businesses to try to continue existence (like mine) and try to rebuild. Also huge benefit to a lot of employees (like mine) to hopefully give a little stability. I for one certainly appreciate this announcement 🙏👏

All good for full/part time but those who are casual and recently have changed jobs fall through the cracks and go from 60-80 hours per fortnight to not much on job seeker (when claim can get lodged let alone processed).

I’m very grateful to the government for this initiative Rick. Thanks!

Now can non-essential businesses close their front doors?

Tania Hathaway this is a very helpful read

Jan Linnett

Lorrae Rebisz does this help you out?

Amy Fitton one less stress

Angela Nicholas

Good news.

Rick, are the members of the Covid-19 Commision being paid and if so how much?

Becky Jayne

Mick Carter

Tabitha please read the attachment Sue this is what i was telling you about

Hopefully the Federal and State Governments have policies in place and are stopping now that it has been highlighted overseas pilfering of goods to China and other countries. ( According to A Current Affair )

The latest advice from the Prime Minister cannot be any clearer - stay at home!

Scott Morrison (ScoMo)
The advice is clear - stay at home and keep at least 1.5 metres away from other people wherever possible. Tonight we announced further measures to help slow the spread of the coronavirus and save lives and livelihoods: ℹ️Public gatherings, excluding household members, have been reduced to a maximum of two people. ℹ️Public playgrounds, outside gyms and skate parks will be closed as from tomorrow. ℹ️Everyone should stay home unless you are: shopping for the things you really need, receiving medical care, exercising or travelling to work or education. ℹ️People aged over 70, aged over 60 with pre-existing conditions, or Indigenous people aged over 50 should stay home wherever possible for their own protection.

We can't let shandro stay in this party. He is an embarrassment https://www.change.org/p/alberta-government-we-need-to-remove-alberta-health-minister-tyler-shandro

Why don’t we have an intensive care bed in the Great Southern?

Unfortunately I still have to go to the shop occasionally. But I do wear a mask and gloves. I live on my own and don't have any family.

How is this saving livelihoods? Completely unwarranted in regional WA. How are we supposed to keep our farms going and pick our crops.

MEET RICK

I was inspired to run for Parliament following my involvement in a decade-long campaign to deregulate the wheat industry, which brought about the end of the Australia Wheat Board’s monopoly.

“I stand proudly for the Liberal philosophy of free markets, vigorous competition, small government and individual responsibility. These are the principles that guide me in my life and in this place. My track record in public life shows clearly that I am prepared to stand up for those principles.”

“To the electors of O'Connor, I reiterate the commitment that I have made to work tirelessly on your behalf, to always be frank and honest about the challenges we face, and to work cooperatively and collaboratively to improve the lives of the people who live in the greatest part of the greatest nation on earth”

– Rick Wilson MP Maiden Speech.
