Senator McGRATH (QueenslandAssistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (17:35): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator McGRATH: The coalition government does not support the forced closure of coal-fired power stations. The coalition government supports affordable and reliable base-load power generation to ensure downward pressure on prices and to protect manufacturing jobs. Coal will remain a major source for the long-term future.
