THE HON MARK BUTLER MP SHADOW MINISTER CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY MEMBER FOR PORT ADELAIDE

MALCOLM TURNBULL MUST IMMEDIATELY RELEASE ACCC REPORT

The Turnbull Government has been sitting on an ACCC report into electricity prices for over a week.

This ACCC report is the culmination of 16 months of work, including public forums, preliminary reports and submissions from 147 stakeholders.

The Prime Minister must immediately release the ACCC report.

The Turnbull Government and the big electricity giants need to show the Australian people that a royal commission into electricity prices isn’t necessary.

Right now, it’s understandable why people would think that it is. Australians have seen power prices skyrocket under Malcolm Turnbull's government.

The causes of high electricity prices under Malcolm Turnbull’s leadership are well known.

They stem from the Turnbull Government’s division and inability to deliver credible energy policy that will support new investment, and bring prices down.

At the end of the day, the only way this energy crisis will end is through a change of government.
