New Soil Bill puts onus on landholders

(1986) New Soil Bill puts onus on landholders. The Queensland Graingrower, 27 August 1986. p. 14 [Publication] [Special Collections]


A new Soil Conservation Bill which places the primary responsibility for prevention of soil erosion on the landholder, has been introduced into State Parliament of Queensland. State Primary Industries Minister, Neil Turner, who announced the introduction of the Bill, said "The role of the State Government will be to provide technical advice, leadership and the legislative support to achieve co-ordination between affected parties". Mr Turner also said the Bill had been originally before Parliament last March and had been widely distributed for public comment, with most responses being highly favourable and supportive. Contribution made by the Soil Conservation Advisory Committee was acknowledged by Mr Turner, who foreshadowed the formation of regional advisory committees.
