Forest Products Bill 1999

Bill No. 76
Long Title The purpose of this Bill is to establish the Forest Products Commission as the body which will be responsible for contracting for the harvesting of forest products on public land and for selling those products. It will also have similar responsibilities with respect to timber sharefarming agreements entered into under section 34B of the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984 if harvesting or sale of forest products is provided for under such an agreement. The Forest Products Commission will effectively take over the commercial responsibilities that the Department of Conservation and Land Management presently has with respect to the harvesting and sale of forest products and matters related to the forest products industry.
