This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on the 28th day after the date of its notification in the Gazette, amends the Animal Welfare (Leg-hold Traps) Order 2007 by substituting a new definition of size 1½. The new definition clarifies an ambiguity in the way in which a leg-hold trap is measured and introduces some flexibility by including traps that come within the range of 10.5 to 13.5 centimetres.
Date of notification in Gazette: 3 December 2009.
This order is administered by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
