I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 356 standing in my name for today relating to the Adani Carmichael coalmine.
I move the motion as amended:
That the Senate call on the Federal Government to:
(a) Add a 'suitable person' test on Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility;
(b) strengthen the environmental history test under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999; and
(c) review Adani’s approvals for the Carmichael mine under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
