Dear Mr Pearce 

MARINE PARKS  Thank you for your recent email to the Premier outlining the views of the Beaumaris Conservation Society on marine parks in Victoria.  I have been asked to respond on behalf of the Premier.  The Government notes your comments in relation to acceptance of the Environment Conservation Council’s report.  After careful consideration and having regard to the impact on recreational fishers, the Government decided not to establish the Marine Sanctuary at Ricketts Point.  The Government maintains its policy commitment to marine parks and is currently in the process of considering options to advance this matter. 

Thank you for writing to the Premier on this matter. 

Yours sincerely

   Lea Corbett
