A report by the US Internal Trade Commission has failed to give any indication as to the current US position over the import tariffs on Australian lamb. The tariffs, which were recently deemed unfair by the World Trade Organisation, were not even mentioned. This has left Australian sheep farmers uncertain as to their future trading relations with the US, and Bill Whitehead, president of the Australian Sheepmeat Council, has said he believes the report signifies a US decision not to end the import tariffs.
