Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Amendment (Independent Expert Scientific Committee on Coal Seam Gas and Large Coal Mining Development) Bill 2012; In Committee
Minister, you are fresh in the chamber on this bill: could you just confirm to me that this bill, which is designed to do research on the coal seam gas industry, excludes in its ambit investigating the problem of salt and the land? It does include the impact on water but not on land. Could you just confirm that?
While you are confirming that I have to say that we have been in touch with the minister on this issue.
