In a similar vein to the comments on Para.5.1. above, the justification behind draft objectives C. and G. must be included in the MCS. Where mineral extraction in National Parks is not "major" or it is in the public interest it is not contrary to national policy for minerals planning.

Inclusion of the words "sufficient supply" in Objective F. is superfluous and confusing. The presumption should be that all mineral resources are safeguarded.

Objective K should specifically mention maximising the biodiversity potential of sites managed by the industry.
