Garrett ducking pulp mill climate change issue – Brown

Greens Leader Bob Brown says Labor's shadow Environment Minister Peter Garrett's backdown on doing a greenhouse gas assessment of Gunns' proposed pulp mill is ducking for cover.
 
"This is the Labor hierarchy gagging Peter," Senator Brown said.
 
"He could, as Minister, order any matter to be considered in assessing the mill.  Gunns' proposed mill and forest furnace will produce 10 million tonnes of greenhouse gases per annum – that's massive.  Labor doesn't need to get new laws to assess the mill's pollution; it needs to get a backbone," Senator Brown said.
