Campaign to Ban Goods Produced By Uyghur Forced Labour
I introduced the Customs Amendment (Banning Goods Produced By Uyghur Forced Labour) Bill into the Senate on 08 December 2020 seeking to ban the importation of any goods made in Xinjiang and other places across China that are produced in whole or in part by forced labour. In June of this year, the Committee handed down its report.
The Committee has recommended the Customs Act be amended to ban the importation of any goods that are produced in whole or in part by forced labour, regardless of geographic origin. It also recommended a range of complimentary measures to deal with this awful trade.
The report was bi-partisan. I am now holding the Government’s feet to the fire until they accept the recommendations of the Committee. Please continue to help me put pressure on the Government to Ban Uyghur Forced Labour by signing my petition!
