It’s an angry Federal Member Dawson, George Christensen who is swinging at his Labor colleagues in the National Capital after Labor Senators pushed off a decision on the Carmichael Mine Project.
“Although Labor said they would support the necessary amendments to the Native Title Act which has essentially frozen a number of projects, including Adani’s Carmichael mine project, over indigenous land use agreements, they have managed to stall the process and further delay job creation.”
“It’s just another example of the so-called ‘party of the workers’ failing to do what is necessary to support workers not only in Central and North Queensland, but also workers in South Australia at Arrium who will have job security through the company’s deal to supply steel to build the Carmichael rail line.”
“The necessary amendments to the Native Title Act were scheduled for a vote in the Senate yesterday but they were pushed off the agenda. They could have been put back on the agenda today, or Labor Senators could have agreed to sit tomorrow to get this legislation passed.”
“They don’t give a damn.”
