World Heritage Areas
That the Senate—
(a) notes the April 2013 letter from the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (Mr Burke) to the signatories in the Tasmanian forestry talks affirming that he would not allow logging within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area or other areas listed in the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999; and
(b) upholds the principle that areas listed as World Heritage should never be logged.
Question agreed to.
