Senator JOHNSTON (12:59 PM) —I must say that the term ‘allowing private interests to extract non-renewable resources’ absolutely typifies the perverse nature of this legislation and the government’s amendment. Who else is going to extract this? Certainly not the government. Only private interests are going to extract oil and gas from our oil and gas licences and petroleum titles; no-one else. As if there is some sort of sin in that. We will be opposing these amendments.
