Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Forests spokesperson
The latest Forestry Tasmania - now fraudulently named Sustainable Timber Tasmania - Annual Report demonstrates the continued failure of the Liberals’ stated commitment to move the business onto a sustainable footing.
The Forestry business made a Net loss of $42 million, comparable to $44 million the previous year. $27 million more was spent on operations than their wood was sold for. That means a $27 million taxpayer subsidy in some form or another.
