Questions without Notice
My question is to the Minister representing the Minister for Education, Science and Training, Senator Brandis. Is the minister aware of a speech on 11 July 2006 by the director of Australian Nuclear Energy Pty Ltd, Mr Hugh Morgan, in which he said:
... to put together an internationally managed [nuclear] repository would bring great standing in the international community for Australia?
Does the government agree with Mr Morgan that locating a global, high-level nuclear waste dump in Australia would be good for our international reputation?
