Call to explore export impacts

MEMBER for Mount Gambier Troy Bell will seek parliamentary support for a select committee to examine the economic impact of wood fibre on regional processors.

The independent MP will move a motion for an inquiry looking into the volume of radiata pine log being exported out of the Limestone Coast and the compliance of the conditions of the sale of ForestrySA’s harvesting rights.

If passed in the state’s lower house, the inquiry will also look at economic benefits and employment
