Further questions over definition of "enclosed lands"

Committee reiterates that "temporarily enclosed lands" falls both under the current act and the current revisions, referencing protests at Westconnex worksites.

The committee then raises the issues between the DPI and farmers regarding state forests and the movement of fences.

Mr Hansen responds that this does not affect this issue because it doesn't change the trespass or enclosed lands definition.

The committee then references the Bob Brown case and political communication.

Mr Hansen notes that "there is nothing in the Bill that stops people from legally protesting", however the committee then breaks into debate between themselves. Mr Hansen notes that concerns over prosecution comes down to the definition of "hindrance". Mr Justin Field again suggests that this term "lowers the bar". 

The discussion with the witnesses ends.
