Labor supports strong animal welfare standards, and we will have more to say on this issue over the coming months.
We believe that all animals should be treated humanely and that it is the responsibility of all governments, state and federal, to ensure that this is done.
Ensuring the highest standards of animal welfare are maintained require the Morrison Government, as the regulator, and industry to remain vigilant and to be guided by the best available science.
That is why Labor wrote to the Agriculture Minister seeking assurance that standards continue to be upheld.
Labor expects the Morrison Government to do everything it can to ensure compliance with animal welfare standards.
