Forestry has dominated this morning's question time, as the State Opposition accused the government of performing a ''backroom deal'' on the restructure of Forestry Tasmania.
The Liberals sought details about potential job losses and the cost of splitting the ailing government business in two and handing responsibility of reserves to a government department.
Resources Minister Bryan Green said some Forestry Tasmania staff would be transferred to the new parks and reserves authority, but said the details of the restructure had not been determined.
The government also objected to the Liberal's repeatedly using the term ''backroom deal'' but Speaker Michael Polley dismissed the complaint.
All eyes will be on the Legislative Council this afternoon as they discuss the 84 findings on the Tasmanian Forests Agreement Bill.
That will be followed by what is expected to be a marathon debate on the legislation which would pave the way for the protection of 500,000 hectares of forests and shrinking the forestry industry.
