Albanese right on uranium - Brown

Senator Brown, 25th July 2006

Labor voters offered Green haven

Labor's environment spokesperson Anthony Albanese's policy of phasing out uranium mining is morally right and will find strong backing from party members, Greens Leader Bob Brown said in Hobart today.

"If Anthony fails, there will be a big swap to the Greens from Labor supporters fed up with Kim Beazley's pursuit of John Howard on uranium. The Greens have a stronger parliamentary record than Beazley on the workplace and refugees, so the Greens offer disgruntled Labor voters a logical haven. We will campaign strongly to keep Australia nuclear-free in next year's election," Senator Brown said.
