  • Regulations and Determinations - Marine Parks Network Management Plans - Disallow

Description

  • <p class="speaker">Scott Ryan</p>
  • <p>The question is that business of the Senate notices of motion Nos 1, 2, 3 and 4 be agreed to.</p>
  • The majority voted against a [motion](https://www.openaustralia.org.au/senate/?id=2018-08-16.199.2) to disallow four marine parks management plans, meaning that the plans remain in force.
  • Greens Senators [Louise Pratt](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/senate/wa/louise_pratt) and [Peter Whish-Wilson](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/people/senate/tasmania/peter_whish-wilson) introduced these disallowance motions, arguing that the plans (along with [one other](https://theyvoteforyou.org.au/divisions/senate/2018-08-16/9)):
  • > *revoke about 40 million hectares of high-level national marine parks, almost twice the area of Victoria. This is equivalent to revoking half of Australia's national parks on land.*
