Mr Kevin Cairns (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) -I give notice that at the next sitting I shall move:

That this House is of the opinion that in all future environmental investigations involving industrial or mining projects any recommendation to terminate, phase out or to alter the projects be rejected unless the following considerations are satisfied:

(a)   the national economic effects of the recommendations have been evaluated in terms of their detrimental effects on employment, income and population support;

(b)   the regional and State economic effects of the recommendation have been evaluated in terms of their detrimental effects on employment, income and population support;

(c)   where an export industry is involved, the ability of that industry, for example the uranium industry, to contribute towards the balance of trade and the balance of payments has been evaluated; and

(d)   alternative and viable proposals have been made to compensate the industry or project recommended to be terminated or to be phased out.
