Greens Senators To Come With Country Of Origin Labelling

Senators from the Australian Greens will be stamped with their country of origin from next week, to help them remember where they come from.

The Greens – who have been strong supporters of country of origin labelling for years – will finally get their wish, with mandatory C of O information identified in large print on all current and future senators.

Greens leader Richard Di Natale said the label will be clearly visible whenever a Greens Senator looks in the mirror. “It’ll hopefully mean we can identify any issues early,” he said, stopping to take a call from another resigning senator.

Mr Di Natale said he would hold a meeting today to discuss the details of the program with remaining Greens senators. Both are expected to attend.
