Launch of bat petition

FEDERAL MP Luke Hartsuyker will launch a petition supporting the removal of the Maclean flying fox colony today at 10am at Maclean High School main entrance.

Mr Hartsuyker requested a private member’s bill be drafted which will call on the Parliament to provide emergency powers to the Federal Minister for the Environment.

Those powers would enable the Minister to authorise the removal of the bats because they are a public health risk.
