I am pleased to make some brief comments in support of this motion. Phasing out the use of 1080 poison in Victoria is longstanding Greens policy. We know, like many in the community, that 1080 poison is a cruel and inhumane method of animal control that does not belong in...

Conservation, Forests and Lands Amendment Bill 2022
