Well that didn’t take long now did it?
And some nice reassuring words of departure from Ms Smith.
The Forestry Advisory Council is clearly only allowed to offer “advise” within a small gamut of opinions and options. Such a waste of effort.

What is the purpose of an advisory council if “everyone is on the same page”? That’s not an advisory council. That’s a political smokescreen, a whitewash!
The whole purpose of an advisory council, as Sue Smith said, is to promote and foster vigorous, open discussion and canvas as wide a range of opinions and options as possible.
The Tasmanian forest industry is going absolutely nowhere until the future of Forestry Tasmania is resolved. And after 21 years we know that the GBE business model has been a total failure. Forestry Tasmania remains the “albatross around the neck” of the forest industry.
