Have your say
Submissions can now be made to the Senate inquiry into the Criminal Code Amendment (Agricultural Protection) Bill 2019, which introduces two new offences relating to the use of a carriage service to incite trespass, property offences, or other offences on agricultural land.
Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt said the legislation was introduced into Parliament earlier this month to stand up for the privacy of farmers and primary producers from animal rights activists.
“I encourage people to have their say; submissions can be made in writing or online and the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Legislation Committee will also hold public hearings later in the year,” he said.
Submissions are open until July 31 and for more information head to: https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Legal_and_Constitutional_Affairs/Agriculturalprotection
