Social and economic impact of rural wind farms
Final

CHAIR (Senator Siewert) —Today the Community Affairs References Committee commences its public hearings for its inquiry into the social and economic impacts of rural wind farms. I welcome officers from the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. Information on parliamentary privilege and the protection of witnesses and evidence has been provided to you. As departmental officers, you will not be asked to give opinions on matters of policy, although this does not preclude questions asking for explanations of policy or factual questions about when and how policies were adopted.
