  •   April 27, 2010     XENOPHON TO CALL ON GOVERNMENT TO RELEASE GAMBLING INQUIRY REPORT    Independent Senator for South Australia Nick Xenophon will call on the Federal Government to  publicly release the Productivity Commission’s final report into gambling at the ninth Annual  Gambling Help Network Forum tomorrow.    This report is the blueprint for gambling reform in this country, and the public has a right to know  what’s contained in it, Nick said. The Government cannot be allowed to sit on this vital information.    The Government has until the middle of July to release the report under Parliamentary rules, but  Senator Xenophon says any delay would only see more gamblers put at risk.    The longer we wait, the more people will suffer through addiction to poker machines and other  forms of gambling. The welfare of people should come before political considerations, Nick said.    It is understood the Productivity Commission report will recommend widespread changes to the  poker machine industry to reduce the unacceptable levels of addiction and problem gambling.    In its draft report, released in December last year, the Productivity Commission recommended  maximum bets on all poker machines throughout Australia be reduced to $1, and maximum hourly  losses capped at $120 an hour.    These reforms are long overdue. If the Government is serious about helping the 400,000 problem

  • Martin Ferguson, MP   Minister for Resources and Energy   Minister for Tourism  Driving Down the Costs of Making Coal Sustainable  [Melbourne]  27 April 2010   **Check against delivery   Ladies and gentlemen,   Thank you very much for the opportunity to be with you tonight at the first ever international  symposium on the sustainable use of low rank coals.  This is a very important subject for Australia â€ nowhere more so than right here in Victoria â€ where  we have economic demonstrated reserves of brown coal that, at today's production rates, would  last for around 500 years.  Before I say more about that, let me also welcome you to Melbourne â€ and Victoria â€ wearing my hat  as Minister for Tourism.  While you are here in Melbourne, I encourage you to make the most of what this city has to offer.  Within walking distance, you will find Southgate and Federation Square overlooking the boulevards  along the Yarra River â€ and offering a diversity of places to dine or shop.  You might also choose to see an exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria, or catch a show at the  spectacular Princess or Regent Theatres.  The importance of coal  When it comes to the world's energy needs, coal provides 41 per cent of global electricity today and  that will grow to 44 per cent by 2030.  Here in Australia, more than three‐quarters of our electricity is generated using coal.  And more than 90 per cent of Victoria's generation is fuelled by brown coal.  There is no doubt that the amount of the world's electricity supplied by gas, nuclear and renewables  will grow in absolute terms over the coming decades.  But the forecast scale of global economic growth is so large that coal will still have to grow, not only  in absolute terms, but proportionally as well.   Therefore, as the world demands cleaner energy supplies we all know that the way we use coal must  change.  This symposium is about how we make that change and find new ways of making coal more  environmentally sustainable â€ including low rank coals such as our enormous brown coal resources  here in Victoria.  Just as we are investing in technology research, development and demonstration to drive down the  costs of renewable energy, we must invest to drive down the costs of low emissions coal technology  as well.  In the Australian context â€ coal is integral to national energy security, the international  competitiveness of many of our industries, and it is a vital source of national income through  exports.  While coal's share of Australia's total energy supply will fall in the coming years, it will still continue  to provide the majority of our energy requirements well into the future.  Alternative sources of energy are going to increase in the years ahead in Australia, but they are going  to complement, rather than replace, our coal generation capacity.  The reality is that intermittent wind or solar power technologies today can't replace baseload coal  fired power.  To replace just 1 gigawatt of Australia's 30 gigawatts of coal fired power with solar photovoltaic (PV),  you would need more than half of the 7.5 gigawatts of solar PV capacity installed worldwide last  year.  Why 4 gigawatts to replace just one? That's what it would take to provide the same level of reliable  output from flat plate solar PV as from coal.
