The land grab

Dear Members of Parliament

As you probably know Great Southern Plantations Limited have now joined the land grab by forest operations companies in Tasmania and are now paying $5000 per hectare. Only the prime cropping and dairying properties are outside their grasp at this stage. What happens when milk prices take a dive and/or vegetable growers suffer another blow before they have a chance to get off the canvas? It may be too late to act at that stage.
