Question Without Notice No. 357 asked in the Legislative Council on 10 April 2019 by Hon Colin Tincknell

Minister responding: Hon M.H. Roberts
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

ANIMAL ACTIVISM — TRESPASS

357. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer to increasing protections for farmers. The minister stated yesterday in the media that she was waiting for advice from the Commissioner of Police regarding increasing penalties for those who live stream video while trespassing. Is the government planning to tighten any other laws pertaining to the protection of farmers, their property and the integrity of their livestock—for example, quarantine laws, privacy laws, destruction of property or conspiracy to commit a crime?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of this question. The following answer has been provided to me by the Minister for Police.

Yes.
