This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force 28 days after notification in the Gazette, is made under section 3A of the Agricultural Pests Destruction Act 1967 (which, although repealed by the Biosecurity Act 1993, continues to apply to pests until a pest management strategy for them comes into effect under that Act). The order exempts 14 breeds of domestic rabbit (and crosses between any of those breeds) from the application of the Agricultural Pests Destruction Act 1967.
Eleven of those breeds were exempted under earlier orders that were revoked by the Biosecurity Act 1993, but 3 other breeds are also exempted. These are the Giant Chinchilla, the Dwarf Lop, and the French Lop.
