Questions without Notice
I ask a supplementary question, Mr President. Minister, will the government in fact support a national carbon emissions trading scheme rather than a regional one—not a global one? Given the comments over the last few days from the Prime Minister, the Treasurer and other ministers, just what is this government’s position on the issue? If it does now support such a scheme, a national scheme, will the minister tell the minister for finance of the change?
