Questions without Notice
Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. Given that the minister has confirmed that all of the options are on the table, can he confirm that locating a global high-level nuclear waste dump is one of those options? What criteria would the government apply to proposals to build a global nuclear waste dump in Australia? And what work has been undertaken on plans to build a global nuclear waste dump in Australia? Does the minister consider any sites in his home state of Queensland to be suitable places to build a global high-level nuclear waste dump?
