Animal welfare issues

In response to OATA's continued lobbying of Government for additional support/assistance for our sector, we have been asked to provide further information in relation to animal welfare.

Not all questions will be relevant to your business but please reply to those that are because the more comprehensive the information we can provide on behalf of the industry then the greater the chance to influence what is happening. 

Many thanks for completing the sections relevant to you. Please add any comments you consider appropriate because all information you can provide will be useful to us.

Chief Executive
OATA
