New animal welfare act for Victoria


Egg farmers and consumers have been asked to comment on plans for a new animal welfare act in Victoria.The State Government wants feedback on its proposals for the new Act which will replace thePrevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1986).

The government says the old legislation is outdated after 30 years and some parts do not work as well as they could.

feedback on the proposals will inform the development of a draft Bill (the draft text of an Act before it is debated and passed in Parliament) for a new animal welfare Act.
