Support for inquiry into fires
VEGETATION management is set to be the key topic at an upcoming parliamentary inquiry. AgForce Queensland members have welcomed the move with the role vegetation management played in the recent bushfires around the state in focus. General president Georgie Somerset said a parliamentary inquiry was the only forum that would reveal the role of vegetation management in the catastrophe. “We believe this will offer a sufficient investigation that will enable sensible changes to vegetation management laws and processes and hopefully prevent these tragedies in the future,” she said.
