48    Industry— Energy policy

Senator Cameron, at the request of Senator Collins and pursuant to notice, moved general business notice of motion no. 966—That the Senate—

               (a)       expresses its disappointment in the Turnbull Government for its chaotic and disunified approach to energy policy; and

               (b)       notes that the Prime Minister’s compromise policy on the National Energy Guarantee will not see a single renewable energy project built for a decade, an energy plan that will see the rates of installation of rooftop solar cut by a half, and an energy plan that will channel billions and billions of taxpayers’ money to building new coal-fired power stations.

Debate ensued.

At 6 pm : Debate was interrupted while Senator Bilyk was speaking.
