Senate Inquiry: Queensland’s future more than a ‘celebrity face-off’

Senate Inquiry into Queensland Government ‘best chance’ for transparency

Dr Drew Hutton writes in The Guardian Australia (21.11.14) that the ‘Clive Palmer-inspired’ Senate Inquiry into the Queensland Government ‘is the best chance we’ve had in years to shine a light into the dark chambers of “Queensland Incorporated”: the donations, questionable mine approvals and the revolving door of senior staff job-shifting between government and the mining industry. The environmental regulation of resources industries in Queensland is broken. Not one coal mine has been rejected on environmental grounds after going through the approvals process in the state’s history.’
