The Legislative Council committee which has been investigating Tasmania's forest peace deal will hand down its report today.

After two months of hearings, the committee's chairman Paul Harriss will table the 180-page report in Parliament this morning.

He says the findings address all the key issues which MLCs had with the legislation.

"For instance, quite obviously the proposed reserves, the wood supplies, what roles Forestry Tasmania might have into the future."

The Upper House has been under pressure to pass the bill quickly to secure millions of dollars in federal funding.

It is likely to become clear how MLCs will vote when the Upper House debates the report on Tuesday.

It is up to the Government to resume debate on the bill, but Mr Harriss expects that will happen the following day.

Hand up

The man who represented Tasmania's forest contractors for the past three years wants to run for a seat in the Upper House.

The former chief executive of the Tasmanian Forest Contractors Association, Ed Vincent, will stand as an independent candidate for Montgomery in May.

Mr Vincent says he recently decided to contest the seat as his position at the association was drawing to a close.

"I felt a great deal of job satisfaction out of what I was able to achieve for contractors, in particular, in the last three years and I wanted to be able to contribute the experience I had by going through that process, by helping people like I helped the contractors," he said.
