Senator MILNE (TasmaniaLeader of the Australian Greens) (17:47): Basically, you are saying that all an importer has to say is that, as far as they are concerned, they believe that it came from a legally logged coupe. Whether or not somebody bribed someone to give them a licence does not come into it. Even so, for example in the Karijini National Park in West Sumatra, we know that there is illegal logging going on. If you were an importer, how would you know otherwise if they say: 'Oh, no, it didn't come from there. It came from logging outside the park'? How is that importer going to know the difference?
