Review of the Code of Practice for Timber Production,
Forests and Parks Division,
Department of Sustainability & Environment,
PO Box 500,
East Melbourne, VIC 3002
We object most strongly to the changes to the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act permitting the secretary of the Department of Sustainability & Environment to overrule the Act to enable logging of coupes under the Code of Forest Practice for increased timber production and by so doing deceive the public into believing that the Act still protects valuable old growth forest from destruction.
