More time for submissions on egg standards.

Consumers and egg farmers have more time to have a say on the labelling of free-range eggs. The federal government has decided to extend the period for written submissions from November 2 to November 27 after receiving a significant public response. "It is important that all relevant stakeholders views are heard and that there is adequate time to provide those views to governments," Assistant Treasurer Kelly O'Dwyer said.
