Christopher de Souza on Wild Animals and Birds (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
The Wild Animals and Birds (Amendment) Bill shines the spotlight on the importance of wildlife to humanity, said MP Christopher de Souza. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Mar 25), he said the Bill makes the Wild Animals and Birds Act more comprehensive. However, he raised concerns over the risks of being “over-inclusive”. For example, it could hamper or prevent the extermination of pests, such as termites and cockroaches. He sought clarifications on various aspects of the Bill.
