Marine Scalefish Fishery

The Hon. C. BONAROS (14:36): Further supplementary: did the minister's agency lodge an appeal to the decision made by SACAT prior to making the decision that was outlined in here yesterday?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:36): As I have said, appeals were lodged during caretaker period and those appeals in the main have now been heard. SACAT has reported and indicated that the minister—which of course is myself now—should reconsider those. What we have is a situation where we cannot proceed in any conscience whatsoever with an unfair policy that sought to enshrine disadvantage.

The Hon. C. BONAROS: Further supplementary.

The PRESIDENT: Final supplementary question.
