  • <p class="speaker">Anne Ruston</p>
  • <p>I seek leave to make a short statement.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Scott Ryan</p>
  • <p>Leave is granted for one minute.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Anne Ruston</p>
  • <p>Gas continues to be a key resource for all Australians. We must continue to strategically develop our gas resources, ensuring Australian industries have access to cheap, reliable gas. Access to cheap, reliable gas is a key part of the Morrison-McCormack government's economic recovery from COVID-19. Australia has vast reserves of untapped natural gas. Developing these resources required strategic planning. Once again, the Greens show their contempt of Australian industries and users.</p>
  • <p class="speaker">Scott Ryan</p>
  • <p>The question is that motion No. 840 be agreed to.</p>
