    Abstract

    On 31 July 1998 the Commission received a request from the Treasurer to undertake, on behalf of the Government of the Australian Capital Territory, a study into whether it is in the public interest for the ACT to: . ban the sale of eggs from battery caged hens in the ACT (whether produced in the ACT or not); . ban the production of eggs from battery caged hens in the ACT; and . introduce a labelling requirement for all eggs displayed, or sold, in the ACT to indicate the conditions under which the hens produced the eggs.
