Senator Eggleston is absolutely right to concentrate on the importance of the need for the next wave of investment in the mining sector, especially for the state of Western Australia, a state that is suffering a surge in its unemployment because of the crippling taxes that the Labor-Greens alliance is this place imposed upon the sector and is now refusing to remove.

Senator Sterle interjecting—

Let's be absolutely clear: we want this new wave of investment because it will create a new wave of jobs and job opportunities for our fellow Australians, and especially for our fellow Australians that live in Western Australia. That is why on 5 April the people of Western Australia will have an opportunity to vote to get rid of the carbon tax, to get rid of the mining tax and to bring the CFMEU into line by voting for the coalition at the Senate election.
