Senator TROETH (11:26 AM) —Firstly, the opinion that I gave on the advice that I had been given meant that, if this amendment is carried, the Tasmanian RFA may be invalid for the purposes of the bill. It is still an RFA. That is the advice that I have been given.

With regard to the objects, as specified by Senator Forshaw in his amendments, the Tasmanian RFA would then not have subscribed to the establishment of a wood and paper industry council. Also, in subsection 2, under (iii), the Tasmanian RFA would then not have subscribed to `the maintenance of an extensive and permanent forest estate in Australia'. It simply applies to Tasmania.
