FACTCHECK ABC -Tony Abbott’s Tasmanian wilderness claim doesn’t check out

 

It is the 2013 extension of 172,050 hectares that the Abbott Government now wants to roll back by just over 74,000 hectares. The 2013 extension increased the listed area by around 12 per cent. The Government wants to remove almost 5 per cent of the increased listed area.
