Establishment of the State Inspection for Animal Protection, compensations for agricultural producers, permissibility of ritual slaughter of poultry and extension of vacatio legis until 1 January 2022 – these are the changes to the Animal Protection Act proposed by the Government. Situation of the Polish countryside and the Polish farmers is an important element of social development. For this reason, the Government led by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki listens to all voices in the public debate. This means that the proposed solutions take into account both animal welfare and the situation of agricultural farms.
