I lost faith in NAPHA as a lobbying organization after being a member for a couple of years. Mainly due to trouble at the top end a few years ago (others can explain). Its all well and good to be passionate but those at the top need the smarts as well.

I admit I thought the same.
But it seems the NSW DRG have admitted it never was law & using a pump is also within the law. Fancy that yikes
Can't reproduce the members newsletter here but the basic outline is it reads to me like a green light to highbank again without fear of fine?
It seems the NSW DRG have dropped the opposition to the high banker & small power operated equipment.

Hi All,
Can we somehow get confirmation of this? I wouldn't mind hitting Oallen again. pickshovel
Recently I've been thinking about selling my pumps and hoses and turning my highbanker back into a river sluice again but I may have to reconsider now.
Cheers

you guys have short memories, they banned greyhound racing virtually overnight , now they admit they made a judgemental error and its back not as it was before but it is back so there is an avenue under some bull dust act where they review legislation on a 5 year cycle the aim of that is to repeal the bull dust laws think its hind under the subordinate act , how many of you would put your hand up for a class action against the government after all they appear to admit they were wrong how many of you have been mentally, psychologically or financially affected by their wrongful application of a law that they now admit ,,,, never existed. if i wasn't bitter and twisted i would run for a political position where i could review the performance of some of those bureaucrats seems they are untouchable

Yes Governments know they are un-touchable.... I tried to sue QLD Health and was advised by 3 top law firms that I would loose the case as they have the laws sown up, so it is very difficult to take legal action against them...

mmm legislation exactly what is is, the law ,,, LAW ,,, i recall a politician once used those words " LAW " but from my observations and interpretation of LAW its just words on paper the test is in the courts to be effective the LAW needs to be tested whatever the outcome its then deemed to be case law,,,, tested by the courts and the real good legal eagles thrive on case law and the weakness of legislation , those that do pro bono cases , well ,,,, probably out for the experience what have they got to loose ,,, nothing ,,, I have been exposed to the best of the best, now the registrar in the supreme court is just a fancy court official they do not apply the proper due processes that we the general public would expect of the higher courts the benefit of a class action is that the costs are spread out across those affected and the defendant would be looking at the payouts if they loose something to think about, now for an example , the parking police must use chalk to effectively mark the tyre of a parked vehicle, they used crayon now that's not chalk so there was a question about the issue of parking fines not issues as prescribed by law, never did hear the outcome .

NAPFA is going to do an update to its members soon and no doubt this will flow to all members of PA forum. Don't hold your breath for good news. Bureaucrats with no freakin idea will probably determine the outcome of this matter.
hmm mad
