Winkler, Ms HS to ask the Minister of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment
Whether an export quota for lion bone is being considered for 2020; if not, why not; Neo, what are the reasons?
The judgment of National Council of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals v Minister of Environ mental Affairs and Others on the lion bone export quota determination process requested the Minister to give consideration to welfare issues relating to lions in captivity when determining the quota. The Department was, therefore, not able b determine the 2019 lion bone export quota and such determination process was thus deferred.
