Agriculture Minister David Carter has called for an urgent review of the welfare code for pigs after an animal welfare group secretly filmed alleged ill-treatment at a Levin pig farm.

The National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee discussed the future of sow crates yesterday at a routine quarterly meeting, but chairman Peter O'Hara was not available to comment afterwards.

Mr Carter has asked the advisory board to make reviewing the 2005 code for pigs its "highest priority".
