Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Amendment (Independent Expert Scientific Committee on Coal Seam Gas and Large Coal Mining Development) Bill 2012; In Committee
The substance of these amendments, which I will move shortly, is that the committee be properly resourced to do its work. The first part of these goes to the staffing of the committee. Before I get to the substance of my amendments, I am interested in whether the minister can tell me a little more about the existing resourcing for the committee, both by way of sheer dollars and by way of staffing numbers.
