Abbott in Rocky today

AUSTRALIA’S cattle exports and the carbon tax are expected to be on the agenda today when Opposition leader Tony Abbott visits Rockhampton.

Mr Abbott is set to meet with graziers this morning at Paradise Lagoons before attending a meeting at the Rockhampton Showgrounds.

This is his second visit to the Capricornia electorate this month and he will be the highest profile politician to visit Rockhampton since Julia Gillard’s announcement about how the carbon tax will work.

Yesterday an LNP spokeswoman said the meeting at the showgrounds was fully booked.
