I think the cadre of Directors tells the story? I knew nearly all of them and am closely related to one. Compared to the present Hunter Local Land Services this was a positively parochial cabal. It seems in today’s world there is much wider geographical distribution of resources. Is this galloping governmental bureaucracy in action; or am I being more than a trite critical (‘Yes Minister’)? It seemed to work in the 20th century. Now millennials rule the roost.
