Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. Considering that the current minister allowed the region's emergency heritage listing to lapse after it had been listed by the previous minister, Peter Garrett, what action if any does the government propose to undertake to preserve the region's wilderness values and to prevent further conflict in the region while the assessment process continues? I will put the context of my question very clearly: this is in line with the fact that, as you mentioned, the minister has commented on the public record that he does see significant conservation values in the Tarkine.
