What’s this about?

Deputy Premier John Barilaro has requested a review as to whether rice vesting continues to be in the best interests of the NSW rice industry.

Rice vesting is established through the Rice Marketing Act 1983 with a key objective of delivering rice export premiums to rice growers. The Act establishes the Rice Marketing Board for the state of NSW authority to regulate NSW rice marketing arrangements.

Rice vesting is established by government proclamation and is for a specified period. The current proclamation period expires on 30 June 2022.

The Deputy Premier’s request for a review is consistent with the statutory review requirements of the Act.

In addition to this, the provisions of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989 require that no proclamation last longer than five years without review and a public benefit case be made for its renewal. This review is the 6th review of rice vesting in NSW.
