  • In April the government provided a $100 000 grant to the Ryan and McNulty timber mill in Benalla to expand its capacity to process native forest timbers, including mountain ash from the Central Highlands. Was the grant intended as a way to inflate the value of the company should any compensation arrangements be an outcome from the forest industry task force?
