Clean Energy Future Plan

(Question No. 1131)


Mr Oakeshott asked the Prime Minister, in writing, on 14 August 2012:

Can she confirm that the $1.7 billion land sector package under the Clean Energy Future plan (a) is permanent, and (b) does not replace any existing programs.


Ms Gillard: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(a) All measures within the land sector package are ongoing programs with the exception of the measure Regional Natural Resource Management Planning for climate change; and

(b) the package is a new measure designed to encourage the participation of the farming, forestry and land sectors in the Clean Energy Future Plan by creating opportunities to reduce carbon pollution and increase the amount of carbon stored on the land.
