Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Greens Senator Andrew Bartlett (Qld), which means it failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i) in September 2017, the Douglas Shire Council in Far North Queensland formally opposed the Adani Carmichael mine project and any new coal mine operations in the Galilee Basin, and

(ii) on 8 August 2018, the Douglas Shire Council voted unanimously to submit a motion to the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) annual conference for the LGAQ to "make vigorous representations to the Queensland State Government urging it to immediately cease any considerations to supporting, financially or by any other means, and either directly or indirectly, the proposed Carmichael Coal Mining Project by Adani in the Galilee Basin"; and

(b) calls on:

(i) the LGAQ Conference to support the Douglas Shire Council motion, and

(ii) the Queensland Government and the Federal Government to revoke all licences from the Adani Carmichael mine project and commit to no new coal mines in the Galilee Basin.
