The Draft Animal Welfare Bill 2022 has been released for public comment, following consultation on the development bill some months ago which the Association put forward a submission to. 

The Association encourages members to review the draft bill on the Department of Primary Industry's website:

The Association is currently reviewing the Bill, and consulting with stakeholders, and will reach out to members and participants for feedback prior to putting forward a submission. Submissions are due on February 13, 2022.
