Substantive Question 1
Has the Minister requested that VicForests assess the damage to tourism and Leadbeater’s possum habitat by logging Blue Vein coupe, which is adjacent to the 350 year old, 76 metre high, 15.7 metre girth Ada tree, which, as one of the largest living things in the world, is a major tourist attraction in the Yarra Ranges and Baw Baw?

Supplementary Question 2
Will the Minister ensure that the logs extracted from Blue Vein coupe are not misgraded, whereby timber-grade logs are downgraded to pulp logs, and sold to foreign-owned Australian Paper to make Reflex Paper?
