Transcript

SIR ARVI PARBO
Chair, Western Mining Corporation

Why is the FitzGerald Report gathering dust? Why is it? It was an excellent report. Nothing has been done about it. And I think itís partly the political correctness. Itís partly because politicians didnít find it attractive in the sense of being able to raise support. Some of the things that the Report recommended would have been unpopular. And the bureaucrats who work in these things couldnít see any merit in it, because it would change the way in which they wished to pursue the whole thing.
