“The changes required cultural surveys for digging a hole more than 50cm, or lifting more than 20kg of dirt, for activities such as mending fences, planting trees or clearing tracks,” he said. “It would cost enormous sums of money for such surveys, with charges between $120 to $160 an hour or $1200 a day, plus travel expenses.”

Lies, lies, lies. So, why? To what end?
