Uranium Mining Ban Petition
Extract from Hansard – Wednesday 25th November 2009
MS A.S. CARLES (Fremantle) [12.12 pm]: I have a petition that conforms with the standing orders with 681 signatures about the reinstatement of the ban on uranium mining in Western Australia. It reads as follows —
“To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled.
We, the undersigned residents of Western Australia are opposed to uranium mining. We ask the Legislative Assembly to recognise the unacceptable risk to the community and the environment posed by uranium mining and to immediately reinstate the ban on uranium mining in Western Australia.
Your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.”
[See petition 197.]
MS A.S. CARLES (Fremantle) [12.13 pm]: I also have a similar but non-conforming petition containing 594 signatures that is addressed to the Premier. I will hand that petition to the Premier.
