Australian Greens Leader Bob Brown says he is alarmed that Tasmania's forest moratorium is no longer a moratorium.
"Logging will not be stopped, as agreed, in all high conservation value forests by 15 March. The loggers have breached the agreement," Senator Brown said.
"The loggers' agreement to a 'full' moratorium from the 15 March now comes with strings attached to the public purse. And rather than reduce the scale of forest destruction, it is to be transferred to other
forests at taxpayers' expense.
