Jan DavisPOLITICAL and private parties have praised the Legislative Council’s move to develop a select committee to nut out the forests agreements.
Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association chief executive Jan Davis said the Legislative Council had voted to keep the agreement legislation alive.
“People tend to forget that if it had not gone to a select committee, the forests agreement legislation was likely to have been vetoed on the third reading,” Ms Davis said, speaking on behalf of private foresters.
“The legislation has been hastily drawn up and has many serious flaws that could have disastrous consequences if implemented.
“There are other stakeholders to consider … We haven’t even seen the maps of the areas they propose to lock up.”
Liberal spokesman Peter Gutwein said the select committee would shine a light on the finer details of the agreement.
A government spokesman said the Tasmanian government would ensure that there were no impediments to the Legislative Council committee, but it was now up to the committee to get on with the job.
