Landholders' Right to Refuse (Gas and Coal) Bill 2013; Second Reading
I note your statements and I will address my comments through the chair. It was Senator Waters who continued to interrupt me. I had given her the courtesy of sitting in silence to listen to her speech.
It should not have come as any surprise to the Greens that this is the position of the Labor Party. It is a very sensible position and one that is entirely justified on the facts. I would also like to respond to a rather unprovoked and unjustified attack by Senator Waters on Santos. She seemed to think it was remarkable that Santos should make a donation to a political party in this country.
