Appearance before the Senate Committee looking into the Feasibility of a National Horse Register.

The second public hearing into the feasibility of a national horse register was held at Parliament House Canberra on Friday, September 20.

You can read the Committee Hansard of the day here.

The AHIC would like to thank the committee for the opportunity for our President, Mark Burnell to appear today. This is the opening statement from the AHIC to the hearing.

There is a great deal of interest in the register from across the equine community and the AHIC undertakes to continue to consult with our members and the wider industry.

Prior to the commencement of public hearings, organisations and individuals had the ability to make a submission for consideration. You can find the AHIC submission and all submissions here.

The AHIC holds a number of Industry Advisory Committee meetings throughout the year, the next one will be in November and the Senate Inquiry will once again be a major agenda item for discussion for our members.

We will let you know where and when that will be shortly.
