How 'independent' will the revamped EPA be?

 

Chief Minister Terry Mills (at left) will front media in Darwin this afternoon to talk about the new Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority Bill introduced into Parliament today. But will the media get any further than Independent MLA Gerry Woods did in Question Time yesterday, when he asked Mr Mills how the existing EPA is not already independent and what the cost would be of setting up a new EPA agency? He got no answer on cost. As for independence, Mr Mills' reply suggests "very, very slow decision-making"  is his main concern, but Jimmy Cocking, coordinator of the Arid lands Environment Centre says  "speeding up decisions is not an improvement" unless all the information is there. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
