TAMS brings word that their cull remains tied up in the Following an ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) hearing today, Territory and Municipal and won’t be heard until mid July.
Following an ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) hearing today, Territory and Municipal Services will delay the commencement of the conservation cull. This is to allow time for the Tribunal to consider the merits of the Conservator’s decision to issue licences to Territory and Municipal Services for the purposes of undertaking a conservation cull of 1455 eastern grey kangaroos at seven reserves.
“It is important to understand that the outcome today was not about the science that supports the conservation cull,” said Daniel Iglesias, Director, ACT Parks and Conservation.
“The finding today established that the parties have standing for the Tribunal to hear the case for and against the issuing of the licences to undertake the conservation cull. The next hearing will be held on 8 and 9 July 2013.
With a pretty tight window to conduct the cull all the protestors need to do now is keep it in front of the tribunal.
