Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown, speaking to journalists in Hobart today, expressed his disappointment at the government's cave-in on pokies and outlined the Greens' legislation to be introduced when parliament resumes, opening up an avenue for reform and help for those addicted to gambling.

Senator Brown reminded the Prime Minister of his very clear message about her very public commitment to protect Tasmania's majestic forests.

Senator Brown also called for a patrol vessel to be sent to the Southern Ocean as Japan's whaling fleet continues its hunt, responding to the latest incident in what is meant to be a whale sanctuary.
