But this time the single tiered deck was empty. The Navigation Act only allows McCormack to grant an exemption to airflow requirements for the double-tiered decks. This is what the 's senior policy officer Jed Goodfellow said about that:

The Al Shuwaikh is a mixed carrier, meaning it usually carries both cattle and sheep. The cattle, which are the most valuable part of the export, are carried on the single tiered deck.

The Al Shuwaikh left Fremantle on Friday with 64,000 sheep on board, after Michael McCormack granted it an exemption under the marine orders to allow it to carry stock on its twin-tiered decks. The RSPCA says airflow on those decks was 0.2mps. The minimum standard is 0.5mps.

The new rules banning twin-tier ships for live export came into force on 31 December. AMSA told senate estimates last year than none of the twin-tier live export ships in Australia meet minimum ventilation standards. There's only one still operating. It's KLTT's Al Shuwaikh.

This is why the Gov is proposing to shelve the Heat Stress Risk Assessment Review recommendations. As RSPCA & AVA have been saying all along - it is too hot to send sheep into the Middle East from May to October.

LIVE EXPORT ALERT: After 12 months of work the Government is planning to SHELVE the Heat Stress Risk Assessment Review because its recommendations would end sheep exports from May to Oct. We can’t let this happen. Tell the Gov they MUST act on the science:
