Agriculture Minister David Littleproud has proposed the adoption of a temporary $0.10 per litre on milk to help dairy farmers who are struggling with the drought and low milk prices. He says that Woolworths has indicated it was willing to support such a levy, which would raise around $250 million a year, provided that Coles did. Littleproud says he has spoken to the Coles CEO, who indicated to Littleproud that he is not so favourably disposed to the idea. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has indicated he is reluctant to support Littleproud’s proposal.
