‘Give this project a fair go’: QLD Opposition Leader confident Adani will go ahead

The Queensland Opposition Leader has insisted the federal government will “do the right thing” by allowing the Adani coal mine project to go ahead.

The Carmichael project has faced countless roadblocks, including legal challenges, protests and financial hurdles, resulting in years of delays.

But it looks like the mine is a step closer to going ahead, with the Federal Environment Minister Melissa Price announcing she has approved the project’s groundwater management plan.

QLD Liberal Leader Deb Frecklington told Ray Hadley she was sure the federal government will allow the mine to be built.

“At the end of the day Queensland is a resources state, we rely upon the royalties that come in from our resources and our trade with other countries.

“We need to give this project a fair go. What we need here in Queensland is jobs.

“I’m very confident that the federal Morrison government will do the right thing.”
