Have your say on foreign ownership register for land

TIME is fast running out for Australians to have their say on the national foreign ownership register for agricultural land.

The consultation paper was compiled by the foreign ownership register working group, chaired by the Treasury and comprising a range of Federal Government agencies.

A copy of the working group's consultation paper as well as details about how to make a submission can be found by following the links at treasury.gov.au.
