Riveting stuff know.
The Chief Minister is letting you know that she’d like you to share your thoughts on the draft Code of Practice for the Sale of Animals in the ACT (Sales Code).
“The Sales Code will apply to anyone that sells animals, including, but not limited to, sales in pet shops, private backyards, fetes, markets, schools, newspapers, internet sales and car-boot sales.
“It includes companion animals, produce animals such as backyard poultry, and animals sold as food in restaurants and markets, such as fish.
The Sales Code does not cover stock animals sold in saleyards or the breeding of dogs for the purpose of sale, which are covered in separate codes of practice.
A number of workshop consultation sessions will be held to discuss the draft Sales Code as follows:
— 12 pm – 2 pm on Thursday 19 April 2012 at Ainslie Football Club;
— 6 pm – 8 pm on Thursday 19 April 2012 at Gungahlin Library; and
— 1 pm – 3 pm on Saturday 28 April 2012 at the Southern Cross Club in Woden.
