Opinions sought on veterinary reforms

THE Standing Committee on Agriculture and Water’s inquiry into Pesticide and Veterinary Medicine Regulatory Reform wants community submissions.

Forrest MHR Nola Marino said the inquiry was based on the finding of Australian National Audit Office audit report number 56, Pesticide and Veterinary Medicine Regulatory Reform.

Mrs Marino said the audit had found legislative reforms to improve the regulatory activities of the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority had mixed effectiveness.

Submissions can be made to the committee’s website until February 28.
