Question Preview:

MR HAYES — To ask the Minister for Agriculture: What public consultation has taken place with landholders adjacent to public waterways around Victoria where unmonitored duck shooting is permitted.

Duck hunting is a strictly monitored activity in Victoria and the government is committed to ensuring that
all forms of hunting on public land is managed to ensure that it is safe, responsible and consistent with a
wide range of other values and users.

The government will not tolerate any activity contrary to its commitment to safe, responsible and
sustainable hunting by either hunters or other members of the Victorian community. I encourage all
members of the Victorian community to report any perceived illegal activity on wetlands to either Crime
Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or the Customer Service Centre on 136 186.
