Teys Australia calls on senate to repeal carbon tax

ONE of Australia's largest beef processors with plants in Rockhampton and Biloela has called on the new senate to repeal the carbon tax for the sake of Australian manufacturing.

Teys Australia, which employs 4500 staff across Australia, says the tax is a massive burden on manufacturers trying to compete in a global market.

Teys general manager corporate affairs Tom Maguire said removing the carbon tax was a key plank of the Abbott Government's election commitment and new senators should not be holding Australia to ransom with political power plays.
