Hunt's Remit

“The environment was always going to be a sensitive issue, as conservation and business interests can seem to be at odds. Greg Hunt made his mark by excising various World Heritage areas of forest in Tasmania, in favour of logging interests. Elsewhere, areas were freed for mining and dredging. All of this, ironically, ‘lightened’ his burden of responsibility.” [Cathy Wilcox, 26 September 2014]
