Federal Minister for the Environment and Heritage
The Hon Dr David Kemp, MP

Response from the Federal Environment Minister to the Opposition Leader's Budget Reply Speech


Simon, if you're serious about the landclearing problem, why don't you pick up the phone and ask your Labor mate in Queensland, Peter Beattie, to fix it NOW.

He's the one who's issuing the permits.

We'd welcome your assistance in persuading him, so why wait?
