Heyfield timber mill

Speeches


MR RICH-PHILLIPS (South Eastern Metropolitan) — My question is also to the Leader of the Government. The Premier has stated — indeed the Minister for Agriculture has repeatedly restated today — that the government does not rule out being a buyer of last resort of the Heyfield mill. What evidence does the government have that it can run the mill on a viable basis with only 60 000 to 80 000 cubic metres of timber a year when Australian Sustainable Hardwoods cannot?
