Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by South Australian Senator Sarah Hanson-Young (Greens), which means it failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i) Hanson Construction Materials Pty Ltd proposes to expand the White Rock Quarry in the Adelaide Hills,

(ii) the expansion of the quarry into existing areas of native vegetation will threaten 17 species of local fauna and their habitat including koalas, the southern brown bandicoot and the short beaked echidna,

(iii) land clearing is the greatest threat to koala survival and millions of native animals, including koalas, are killed each year in Australia due to land clearing, and

(iv) members of the local community oppose the expansion of the White Rock Quarry; and

(b) calls on the state Government of South Australia to halt the expansion of the Hanson White Rock Quarry.
