Greens call for water tank guidelines to be changed
Labor says the federal government should be held to account over its decision to give water to a huge network of water tankers operating between Sydney and Brisbane for more than a decade.
Labor water policy spokesperson Scott Morrison said the situation was extremely worrying and he called for an investigation into the matter.
“The Coalition is allowing the big aquaculture companies like Aquatic Australia that we should all be paying attention to to continue operating with impunity,” he said.
“This has to stop, these companies owe an apology to the people of Australia and have been doing it for years.
“The public deserves to know whether this is the behaviour we are allowing for in the name of jobs and prosperity.”
Mr Morrison said he would not back down from his promise to find out whether there was criminal activity involved.
The Government says its approval process for aquaculture approvals was rigorous and there were no failures in that process.
