WILD DOG CONTROL
The Hon. ROBERT BROWN:
My question without notice is directed to the Minister for Finance and Services, representing the Minister for the Environment. Is the Minister aware of calls by the New South Wales Farmers Association for more government money to be spent controlling the State's wild dog population, particularly those emanating from national parks? How much money has been reallocated within the trimmed national parks budget—perhaps from the enlarged component that pays for locks and gates—to address this specific wild dog issue?
The Hon. GREG PEARCE:
I am aware of those concerns, as I am sure is the Minister for the Environment. I will have to get the member the detail of the actual allocation. I will do that as soon as I can.
