Summary

Edit

The same number of senators voted for and against a motion introduced by ACT Senator Katy Gallagher (Labor), which means it failed.

Motion text

(1) That the Senate notes that:

(a) in March 2019 the Morrison Government committed $3.3 million in public funds to Shine Energy Pty Ltd to conduct a feasibility study into a new coal-fired power station in Collinsville;

(b) on 3 June 2021, in an interview with Minister Taylor, ABC Capricornia stated it had been informed by Senator Canavan that the feasibility study has been sitting on Minister Taylor's desk; and

(c) Minister Taylor's response was that he had not 'seen the outcome of the study yet'.

(2) That there be laid on the table by the Minister representing the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction, by no later than 9.30 am on Thursday, 24 June 2021, the feasibility study undertaken by Shine Energy Pty Ltd into a new coal-fired power station in Collinsville, as a publicly funded study should be available to public scrutiny.
