Bunnings has publicly declared that they won’t block the agreement – will Harvey Norman be next?
Great news – Bunnings has confirmed they are not involved in blocking the Tasmanian forest agreement, as claimed by old-growth saw-millers in Tasmania.
In a statement to GetUp Bunnings Managing Director John Gillam said that:
“Bunnings has always been supportive of a Tasmanian forest agreement being reached and there is no truth in reports by third parties that we were involved in the collapse of the agreement. We want to see an agreement that would support the timber industry, local communities and the environment”.
We congratulate Bunnings, and this confirms that retailers will support the Tasmanian forest industry if an agreement is reached to restructure the industry and protect high conservation value forests. More news to come soon!
