Environment Australia, 2000
Minister for the Environment and Heritage
Canberra ACT 2600
In accordance with Section 63 of the Public Service Act 1999, I present the Annual Report of the Department of the Environment and Heritage for 1999-00. The Report also includes the Annual Report of the Supervising Scientist in accordance with subsection 36(1) of the Environment Protection (Alligator Rivers Region) Act 1978.
The Annual Reports on the operation of the Ozone Protection Act 1989 as required by Section 68 of that Act and on the operation of the Hazardous Waste (Regulations of Exports and Imports) Act 1989 as required under Section 61 of that Act are also included. The Director of Meteorology provides a separate Annual Report - but a brief report of the activities of the Bureau as a Department agency is included here.
I thank all staff for their hard work, creativity and commitment over the past year. As a result, I believe the Department is well placed to meet the challenges ahead.
