Constituency Question Duck Hunting

Melina BATH (Eastern Victoria) (12:52): (407) My question is to the Minister for Outdoor Recreation. Today we have seen the Animal Justice–Labor–Greens alliance hand down a flawed report that would see the banning of native duck hunting in Victoria. This report ignored the science. It ignored the ecologists’ decision and comments, Klaassen and Kingsford, around the interim harvest model as being an exemplary model for the continuation of duck hunting. It has ignored a whole raft of recommendations, and it also is a frustration to my constituent Field and Game conservation volunteer Gary Howard OAM, who asked me to ask the minister to ensure that she listens to the science and rejects the flawed report that would see duck hunting banned. Minister, will you reject this report?
