The Animal Justice Party’s Mark Pearson has a bill to require pain relief for painful and invasive agricultural procedures like mulesing, tail docking, dehorning and castration. The bill also supports a phase-out of sheep mulesing as introduced in Victoria and there will be an upper house inquiry into the bill. I have discussed the bill with Mr Pearson and will support the reform in the Legislative Assembly. You can provide comment to the Legislative Council Inquiry by 31 July: HERE.
