Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Amendment (Independent Expert Scientific Committee on Coal Seam Gas and Large Coal Mining Development) Bill 2012; In Committee
Thanks, Minister. Unfortunately, that is perfectly clear, but what is not clear is this spurious balance that you are seeking to create in relation to a resource that stands to be completely destroyed by the activity. I am simply seeking to understand the reasoning. Given that this is the committee stage and we are asking questions here, perhaps the minister could respond to that.
