SHADOW MINISTER FOR ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER AFFAIRS

TICKNER SHOULD RELEASE CROC REPORT

Following the announcement earlier this week that Minister Tickner has put a permanent order on the proposed extensions to the Broome Crocodile Farm, I have received a number of calls asking the basis upon which the Minister has made his decision.

I understand from the Minister's own press release that he is prepared to release the conclusions of Fred Chaney's report on the matter. I don't believe this is sufficient.

It is important in all matters of public interest that justice is not only done but seen to be done. Therefore I call on Minister Tickner to publish the Chaney report in its entirety, including the supporting evidence, forthwith.
