Questions without Notice
Emissions Trading Scheme
I congratulate you, Mr President, upon your election and I congratulate the Deputy President upon his election. My question is to the Minister for Climate Change and Water, Senator Wong. Is the minister aware of the Business Council of Australia’s warning that the minister’s emissions trading scheme as set out is a company killer? Has the minister seen reports that the jobs of up to one million Australians who work in trade exposed emissions intensive industries are at risk from a rushed and poorly designed emissions trading scheme? Why is the government putting Australian jobs at risk to this extent by rushing its emissions trading scheme?
Where to next?
