The Liberal-National coalition government supports the development of the Adani Carmichael mine and further development of the Galilee Basin under the robust environmental laws that we have. The development of the Galilee basin will deliver up to 15,000 jobs and add billions of dollars to the Queensland economy. The traditional owners of the land voted 294 to one in favour of the development of the Carmichael mine. The authorisation by traditional owners of this project has been upheld by the Federal Court against the challenge to its decision. We should respect the wishes of these traditional owners.
