Background With the passing of the Rabbit Suppression Act 1880, the Commissioner of Crown Lands and Survey, together with municipal councils became responsible for the extermination of rabbits. Subsequently the Commissioner/Minister became responsible for the control and destruction of proclaimed vermin and noxious weeds; the payment of subsidies to municipalities; the conduct of scientific research work to assist the control of noxious weeds; the Vermin and Noxious Weeds Destruction Board and the Keith Turnbull Research Institute. Responsibility for the destruction of noxious weeds in forests was transferred to the Minister of Forests in 1943.
