Whilst, Dr Bidda Jones, chief scientist of RSPCA, appropriately criticises the eroding of ESCAS investigation transparency, Ms Penfold of ALEC also doesnt hold back. She, like anyone concerned with monitoring ESCAS, stated recently that the time the Dept of Ag (DA) takes to investigate non-compliance is unacceptable.
Must be hard for the DA being taken to task by ALEC when they bend over backwards to accommodate the live-ex trade and its non-compliance.... even removing its transparency to hinder independent scientific scrutiny by groups such as RSPCA and VALE.
[Note: VALE would argue it also takes too long to investigate high mortality voyages and that the detail in the high mortality voyage reports is also steadily being eroded over time].
