Questions without Notice
Tasmanian Regional Forest Agreement
My question is to Minister Sherry representing the Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. Has the Rudd government had any talks with, or given any undertakings to, Tasmanian Premier David Bartlett or any member of the Labor government in Tasmania about immediately renegotiating the Tasmanian Regional Forest Agreement to provide for logging of old-growth forests in Tasmania until at least 2037—20 years beyond the end of the current agreement due to end in 2017?
