Land release policy 'dangerous'

Bolt, C. (1981) Land release policy 'dangerous'. Western Farmer and Grazier, 21 May 1981. p. 12 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The WA government's land release policy has been labelled as irresponsible and dangerous by a group led by Mount Barker farmer and sociologist Ron Richards. The group further alleges that the harmful consequences of the policy have been overlooked in favour of vested interests. Mr Richards has centred his criticism on the yet to be released Rural and Allied Industries Council report recommendations that nearly 3 million hectares of land in the Esperance area should be earmarked for land release and could be suitable for agriculture.
