General Motors Holden Plant, Elizabeth, South Australia

Debate resumed on motion by Mr Zappia:

That this House:

(1) notes that the General Motors Holden plant in Elizabeth is an iconic South Australian industry directly employing around 2500 people;

(2) acknowledges the important contribution the General Motors Holden Elizabeth plant makes to the South Australian economy and to the broader Australian manufacturing industry;

(3) recognises the importance of the visit to Detroit in January 2012 by the Minister for Manufacturing, Senator the Hon. Kim Carr, and South Australian Premier, the Hon. Jay Weatherill, in securing the long term future of the General Motors Holden Elizabeth plant, and commends both of them for their efforts in support of the jobs of thousands of South Australians; and

(4) condemns the Coalition for the uncertainty being created by its policy to cut $500 million from the auto industry.
