Garrett adopts Gunns' Pulp Mill Schedule

Media Release
Bob Brown 1 Feb 2008

Greens Leader Bob Brown has questioned new Environment Minister Peter Garrett's late Friday afternoon part approval of Gunns' pulp mill proposal in Tasmania.
 
"This piecemeal process is to convenience Gunns on Minster Garrett's road to full approval of the pulp mill." 
 
"The late Friday announcement shows how embarrassed they are about this issue."
 
"They know most Tasmanians and most Australians want them to give thumbs down to the pulp mill and to save Tasmania's wild forests and the Tamar Valley farm lands."
 
"Minister Garrett should not be authorising the pulp mill bulldozers to move in until he has completed studies of the full proposal," Senator Brown said.
