WISALTS column

(1985) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 23 May 1985. p. 9 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Laws and regulations - its seems that everywhere one turns, new ones keep popping up. Laws and regulations which concern farmers in particular vary from the requirement to complete a statistics form each year (have you returned yours yet?) to fairly new regulations (October 1984 with full implementation in October 1985) on noise controls in the workplace. Clearing regulations of some kind are said to be in the pipeline in Western Australia following the clearing bans introduced in certain river catchments of the state in the closing years of the last decade. Broadly speaking, laws and regulations etcetera, interfere and restrict our actions - sometimes negatively, sometimes positively. Though not legally binding as laws and regulations passed by local, state or federal governments, recommendations - or lack of them - can be an interference and a hindrance to progress.
