Well the Moss Review couldnt have been more thorough.....it said pretty much everything we knew....that the regulator and regulation have been shambolic and animal welfare the big loser. The Review recommended appointment of an Independent Inspector General (as did the Productivity Commission before it)...and the Minister David Littleproud says he will see it through.
So...VALE acknowledges the significant dedication and diligence of Mr Moss and his team...and David Littleproud for his unwavering committment thus far.
However, its important to note that throughout this process animals have continued to suffer on ships and at end destinations. The Moss Review, as the Keniry Review (2004) did before it emphasises the inherent and significant risks for animal suffering in this trade:
"By its nature, live animal exports present a high risk to animal health and welfare" (Moss 2018).
