Australian Forest and Wood Innovations

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:23): Supplementary: has the minister made any direct representation to her federal colleagues to provide support in regard to expressions of interest for the two research centres under the Australian Forest and Wood Innovations program?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:24): I am constantly having interactions with my federal counterparts. The very establishment of the Forestry Centre of Excellence and the work that we do with the Green Triangle forest industries hub and the various projects that have been put forward through that are all part of one coordinated policy initiative.
