18    Mining—Queensland—Galilee Basin and Abbot Point

Senator O’Sullivan, pursuant to notice of motion not objected to as a formal motion, moved general business notice of motion no. 824—That the Senate notes:

    (a)   the importance of the Galilee Basin and Abbot Point to the future development of northern Australia;

    (b)   the ongoing support of the Queensland and the Australian governments for the responsible and sustainable development of the Galilee Basin and Abbot Point;

     (c)   the actions of anti-coal activists which have delayed billions of dollars in investment and thousands of much needed jobs; and

    (d)   the importance of maintaining the reputation of Queensland and Australia as a mining and resource hub by removing legal loopholes that allow for the hijacking of approval processes for political purposes.
