Saudi sheep deal shorn

The Herald reports:

The controversial Saudi sheep deal been shut down, which the Government says will save about $1 million.
The deal was made to set up an agribusiness hub in the Saudi desert for Saudi businessman Hmood Al Ali Al Khalaf, which would be used to showcase innovative New Zealand farming operations.

Good. This was one of the more dubious decisions made by the last Government. Labour were right to criticise it, and right to halt it.
