Labor and the Greens today voted against a Liberal Senate motion noting, "the vital role in the Tasmanian economy played by the forestry industry, and the need to support this industry and the building of a pulp mill in Tasmania."
The motion attacked 'green groups' for their campaign against Gunns.
Earlier however, Labor sided with the Government to oppose Greens Senator Bob Brown's amendment deploring "Gunns' destruction of Tasmania's ancient forests and wildlife."
