Senator BROWN (10:32 AM) —Thank you, Madam Chair. You will remember that at the end of yesterday's proceedings I drew to the parliamentary secretary's attention the important matter of imminent logging on Quamby Bluff in north-central Tasmania and the request that I had from the Deloraine Aboriginal community to state, first of all, their alarm that they had not been notified about this and, secondly, to see what I could do to find out about it. With the parliamentary secretary having the benefit of overnight consultation, I wonder if I could have the parliamentary secretary tell the committee what in fact she has been able to ascertain about the logging that is about to occur on Quamby Bluff without consultation with the indigenous people.
