Kangaroo Island Plantation Timbers

Tuesday September 07, 2021

Mr BELL (Mount Gambier) (15:12): My question is to the minister for forestry. How much of Kangaroo Island's timber will be burnt and lost over the next three weeks?


The Hon. D.K.B. BASHAM (Finniss—Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development) (15:12): As minister, I am not responsible for KIPT's actions, but my expectation is that there will be no timber burnt in the next three weeks or lost to the market because I think it's outside the KIPT application that's been made. They are looking for people to tender to clear this land, so to see that timber burnt prior to that would be very surprising because it's outside the expectations of KIPT themselves.
