The Australian Greens have introduced a bill for the Office of Animal Welfare.
Below are excerpts from the media release from today:
The Australian Greens have introduced a bill into the House of Representatives today to establish an independent Office of Animal Welfare, implementing an ALP National Conference resolution made over two and a half years ago.
“The Voice for Animals (Independent Office of Animal Welfare) Bill will establish an animal welfare champion to promote animal rights that is independent of government and the Department of Agriculture,” Greens Deputy Leader Adam Bandt said.
