Environment and Heritage Legislation Amendment Bill (No. 1) 2006

Adjourned debate on the motion of the Minister for Ageing (Senator Santoro)—That this bill be now read a second time.

And on the amendment moved by Senator Carr —At the end of the motion, add “but the Senate:

(a) expresses its serious concern that:

(i) the bill is being rushed through the Parliament without proper consideration or consultation,

(ii) the Howard Government has failed to halt the decline in Australia’s natural environment and best agricultural land,

(iii) the bill contains no measures to cut Australia’s spiralling greenhouse pollution or protect Australia from dangerous climate change,

(iv) the bill will increase the Howard Government’s politicisation of environment and heritage protection, and

(v) many of the proposed changes in the bill will reduce ministerial accountability and opportunities for genuine public consultation; and therefore

 

 (b) calls on the Howard Government to:

(i) ensure climate change is properly factored into environmental decision-making under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 ,

(ii) establish a climate change trigger in the Act to ensure large scale greenhouse polluting projects are assessed by the Federal Government, and

(iii) allow greater time for public consultation and debate on the bill” ( Leader of the Australian Greens (Senator Bob Brown), in continuation, 29 November 2006 ).
