Questions without Notice
My question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate, representing the Prime Minister, Senator Brandis. Our new Prime Minister has said that he wants to place science and innovation at the heart of his government. Given that the targets that this government is taking to Paris are totally inconsistent with the science and keep us firmly in place as the world's biggest per capita polluter up until 2030, will the Prime Minister now revise the targets he is taking to Paris so that they are indeed based on science and they do drive innovation, or is the Prime Minister just another politician who says one thing but does another?
