Nothing will get in the way of the Enduro World Series in Derby, if MP Sarah Courtney has anything to do with it.

The Liberal Member for Bass has heard rumours of protests planned for the event, given the heated forestry and logging debate that has been ongoing in the government and the community.

Ms Courtney speaks with Brian Carlton about the upcoming event and the potential for protesters.

“The government will not authorise any harvesting which will cause detriment to any significant tourism infrastructure or service," she says.

"We are not going to do anything that's going to compromise the quality of these trails."
