Coal Seam Gas
I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 546 standing in my name.
I move the motion as amended:
That the Senate notes:
(a) that no coal seam gas development should proceed where it poses a significant impact on the quality of groundwater or surface water systems; and
(b) it must absolutely clear that no coal seam gas development should occur unless it is proven safe for the environment.
The Senate divided. [15:40]
