Abstract

A little more than ten years ago, Parliament in Western Australia passed a Bill, for an Act Relating to the Conservation of Soil Resources and the Mitigation of Erosion. The Soil Conservation Act, as it is generally called, was assented to on January 9, 1946, and was proclaimed in July of the same year. We can now look back over the ten years since the Act was considered by Parliament. What were the reasons tor this Act? What have been its effects? What is the future of soil conservation?
