Brown welcomes Campbell

Greens Senator Bob Brown today welcomed WA Senator Ian Campbell to the environment portfolio.

"I've sent him an immediate invitation to Tasmania's forests to see the destruction under his predecessor's rule," Senator Brown said.

"I wish Ian well. It's a tough job under this most anti-green of prime ministers. But it's great the environment portfolio is back in the Senate, the Greens' stronghold.

"Ian's gone from roads to forests, from filling potholes to emptying possum nests according to the Howard way.

"A short list for the new minister would also include banning plastic bags, getting the GST off public transport, signing the Kyoto Protocol and signing up some Indigenous Australians to advise on land custodianship," Senator Brown said.
