(3) If TAMS had further resources, which weeds, if any, would be the priority to move into a different category.

(4) What process is undertaken to update the list referred to in part (3).

(5) Which plants have been added to the suppressed or contained categories in the last six years.

(6) What is the justification for keeping easily spread weeds such as privet or cotoneaster in the prohibited category rather than the suppressed or contained category.

(7) Does PCL undertake any special activities in regard to prohibited plants, for example, an annual blitz on removing such plants from public land.
