Vic govt lashes out at Canberra’s alpine rules

THE Victorian government has hit-out at Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, Tony Burke, saying that he has failed to consult with the government on his stance on ending alpine cattle grazing in the state.

Last week, Canberra rushed through new rules to stop the return of cattle grazing to Victoria’s Alpine National Park this summer.

“It continues the pattern of lack of consultation with any of the states on this issue,” a government spokesperson said.

“Mr Burke didn’t even have the courtesy to let the Victorian government know he was about to trample on states’ rights in under 24 hours.

“We have always been prepared to work with the Commonwealth to supply any information they require however they have taken this action without any consultation.”

The state government said it will now consider the detail in the proposed regulations.
