Questions without Notice
When asked whether the Nationals' party room would be supportive of net zero, Mr Pitt said, 'I think they would be unsupportive.' Is it Deputy Prime Minister-elect Mr Joyce's intention to make the Nationals opposition to net zero emission part of the coalition agreement?
Thank you for the question. This government has been very clear that we want to get to net zero as quickly as possible. This is a global problem in need of a solution that works right across the world. We need to make net zero practically achievable for us all. We are taking action now to get the technologies right to enable us to get there.
