Labor not putting all eggs in Adani's basket

 

The Labor Leader has been forced to face the tough questions surrounding the Adani Coal Mine. 

Speaking from North Queensland yesterday, Bill Shorten said his views haven't changed in two years. 

"We will be guided by the best science, we will not use any taxpayer money, we will not engage in any sovereign risk and we will adhere to the law of the land," he said. 

"If I'm Prime Minister I'm going to be governed by the law, I'm not going to be governed by a mining company or an environmental activist and that's what I think people of North Queensland deserve.

"Labor is not putting all its eggs in the Adani basket, if that stacks up it stacks up in the manner which I've already outlined."

Mr Shorten quickly redirected the focus on what his Government is committing to. 

"Labor is outlining $6 Billion dollars’ worth of infrastructure projects which will create 24,000 jobs right across Queensland," he said.

"Today's latest announcement about investment in regional tourism and prioritising the best science to govern the rescue of the Reef is again our commitment to create new jobs in North Queensland and protect the existing jobs." 

 

The Labor Party will include Coal in its Energy mix going forward but there will be more renewables.
