To be be­lieved, drum up some money

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

I HAVE long sus­pected that those op­pos­ing the use of drum lines against sharks are plants try­ing to turn opin­ion against the Gov­ern­ment be­cause drum lines have been used ef­fec­tively in New South Wales and Queens­land for many years with­out sim­i­lar protests.

I will ac­cept that th­ese peo­ple are gen­uine when they set up, from their own pock­ets, a sys­tem of fi­nan­cial support for the fam­i­lies of those taken by sharks, given that they have pre­vented the Gov­ern­ment from pro­tect­ing those who en­ter the wa­ter. John Ran­dall, Halls Head.
