Foreign Investment Review Board fails to see Tasmanian devils as being in the national interest

The TCT is disappointed that the Foreign Investment Review Board and Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison have approved the sale of Van Diemens Land Company without placing conditions requiring the buyer to retain all habitat for the Tasmanian devil. The current owners of VDL are dedicated to clearing more than 1800 hectares of forest at its Woolnorth property and converting it to dairy pasture.
