Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion that raised concern over media reports about a lack of transparency surrounding the Abbot Point coal terminal and the Adani Group. This means the motion failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes recent media reporting which shows that Adani's ownership arrangements in relation to the Abbot Point coal terminal and proposed Carmichael coal mine lack transparency; and

(b) calls on the Federal Government to urgently establish which individuals or corporate entities control the Abbot Point coal terminal and the Carmichael mine, whether all relevant disclosures have been made to the Minister for the Environment, and whether the environmental history of all persons or corporate entities involved has been appropriately considered.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority
