PGA calls emergency Rangelands meeting

Written on the 24 April 2016

PGA calls emergency Rangelands meeting THE Pastoralists and Graziers Association (PGA) has called for an emergency forum of pastoralists to debate Rangelands reform next Friday, adamant that the government is unwilling to negotiate key sticking points in its draft legislation.

Department of Lands officials last month held stakeholder meetings on the draft Land Administration Amendment Bill in the Kimberley and Pilbara.

But PGA president Tony Seabrook said the association had continued to receive information from concerned pastoralists and was in a stand-off with Lands Minister Terry Redman over the extent of ministerial power entrenched in the new Bill and its new security of tenure provisions.

Therefore the organisation had decided to call a special meeting.
