Animal Welfare


2467. Hon Alison Xamon to the Minister for Agriculture and Food:

I refer to the article “Clothing brands in mulesed wool ban” in West Business on 4 September 2019, referring to the planned phase out of mulesed wool by retailers David Jones and Country Road, and ask:

(a)  does the Minister agree with the statements made by Farmers WA Wool spokesperson, Steve McGuire, that retailers phasing out mulesed wool in their clothing ranges is counter-intuitive to good animal welfare;


1198. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Racing and Gaming:

I refer to the disturbing report regarding racehorses sent to slaughter on ABC’s 7.30 program on 17 October.

(1)  Can the minister advise whether any Western Australian racehorses have been or are being sent to

slaughterhouses when they are no longer able to race or are uncompetitive?
