Sun Xueling on National Parks Board (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
A Bill to transfer non-food plant and animal-related functions from the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority to the National Parks Board was presented in Parliament on Tuesday (Feb 12). It makes NParks the lead agency for animal and wildlife management as well as animal and plant health. NParks would also oversee disease detection at all potential points of incursion. Senior Parliamentary Secretary for National Development Sun Xueling explained the advantages of the changes, saying human-animal issues are becoming "increasingly complex".
