Taxpayer gifts to the woodchipping industry

“Forestry funding for Eden-Monaro” (Magnet 11 January 2021) informs us of the latest round of cash gifts from taxpayers to the logging industry.

Some readers may be finding it hard to keep a tally of the accumulating millions being handed out to industry so it can continue to log our forests for woodchips.

The flood of announcements certainly has been bewildering, especially when some grants have been announced more than once and many have been under the guise of “bushfire recovery.”

If you are one of those having trouble, this page has most of them. http://www.chipstop.savetheforests.org.au/subsidies.htm
