Mitsubishi sets lead

Latham and Howard should follow suit

"The Mitsubishi Corporation's intention to end purchasing woodchips from Tasmania's old growth or high conservation forests is laudable and throws down a challenge to the federal Liberal and Labor parties to catch up," Greens Senator Bob Brown said today.

"If Mark Latham and John Howard would match Mitsubishi in asserting that 'we do not condone unsustainable logging from old growth or high conservation value forests in Tasmania' the nation would give them a thumbs up at the ballot box," Senator Brown said.

"I have written to Mitsubishi to congratulate it and suggest a joint inspectorate with The Wilderness Society to check that the logs woodchipped for Mitsubishi are not coming from disputed forests," Senator Brown said.
