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