Media Release
Penny Wright 9 Jul 2014

I move that the Senate:

1.      notes the importance of protecting valuable agricultural, residential and conservation land from unconventional gas activities;

2.      supports the right of landholders and local residents to say "no" to unconventional gas exploration and mining in their communities;

3.      recognises the concerns expressed by communities in the South East of South Australia over potential groundwater contamination from unconventional gas activities; and

4.      congratulates the South East Local Government Association in South Australia for standing up for their local communities and voting for a moratorium on unconventional gas.
