Mr Whitlam asked the Minister for National Development the following question, upon notice;

What requests or suggestions were made at the meeting of the Forestry Council in Hobart in October for legislative or administrative action by (a) the Commonwealth, (b) the Territories and (c) the States.

Mr Swartz - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

As was advised the. honourable member in reply to a similar question last year, the Australian Forestry Council is an advisory and consultative body of Commonwealth and State Ministers and public pronouncements are not necessarily made on all matters that are discussed.

Following the eighth meeting of the Council In Hobart on 3 1st October 1969, a press statement was issued on behalf of the Council by my predecessor as Chairman, and this indicates the important matters discussed. A copy of this press statement is being made available to the honourable member.
