Throughout the inquiry, many submitters and witnesses expressed concerns
about a range of environmental issues affecting flora, fauna and land across
Queensland. These include specific concerns about our iconic wildlife, such as
koalas and bats, native plants, world heritage listed areas, and the effects of
certain types of mining activities on human beings and domesticated animals.
The committee noted the outpouring of emotion in submissions and at hearings
from many individuals who have expressed fear for their lives and those of
their families, their animals, native flora and fauna, as well as a fear of
losing their livelihood because of large scale mining projects that are
encroaching on their land and homes.
While a very wide range of specific environmental issues were raised
with the committee, for the purposes of this report, the committee has outlined
several main concerns that were brought to its attention. These include
concerns that decisions are being made that are inconsistent with Australia's obligations
under international environmental law instruments, concerns about the
appropriateness of the federal minister for the environment delegating his
power to the state under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Act
1999 (EPBC), and the detrimental effects of coal seam gas (CSG) mining
Obligations under international environmental law instruments
Australia is a signatory to multiple international agreements that are
designed to guide us in the protection of our unique environment. A number of
witnesses and submitters expressed concerns that decisions are being made that
are inconsistent with Australia's obligations under international environmental
law instruments, including the Ramsar Convention that provides the framework
for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources, and the
UNESCO World Heritage Convention.
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) provided evidence that at a base level,
the chances of the Queensland government complying with our international
obligations are limited, due to the way in which Queensland has legislated.
As meeting the obligations of international environmental
treaties is the legal responsibility of the Australian Government, Queensland
Government legislation does not contain any specific measures or provisions
that would enable the Queensland Government to meet the obligations of Ramsar,
Jamba, Camba, Rokamba and other international treaties the Australian
Government is party to.
The WWF provided details about a number of development actions and
practices that are currently being allowed by the Queensland government which
are inconsistent with Australia's international environmental obligations.
These include a number of projects within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage
This action has been compounded by legislative amendments that have
either removed or substantially weakened long standing environmental protection
measures, in order to facilitate economic development opportunities. The WWF
provided several examples, including:
Rescinding the Wild Rivers Act 2005 to enable agricultural
and mining development in Queensland’s last remaining pristine river basins;
Amending the Water Act 2000 to enable more water to be
extracted from waterways and aquifers for consumptive purposes, watercourses to
be deregulated and removal of Ecological Sustainable Development (ESD)
principles from the purpose of the Act; and
Establishing the Queensland Ports Strategy to enable new port
development adjacent to the GBRWHA.
Mr Drew Hutton provided evidence about the Wild Rivers legislation
mentioned by the WWF:
Out in the Cooper Basin, it [the Wild Rivers legislation] has
got support from virtually all the stakeholders out there. The pastoralists,
the traditional owners and the environmentalists all accept the need for Wild
Rivers declaration over it – so did the Newman government, I might add,
initially. There is an enormous amount of shale gas reportedly out there. The
Newman government has simply rescinded that. There is no longer a Wild Rivers
proposal for the Cooper Basis. There will be, if the reports are correct,
extensive shale gas mining over that area. That is important because that is a
huge area that is drained by the Lake Eyre rivers and is highly significant
Dr Aila Keto AO, President of the Australian Rainforest Conservation
Society Inc (ARCS), provided evidence that the former Queensland government had
reversed a number of decisions in contravention of Australia's obligations
under the Convention on Biological Diversity. These include decisions to
transfer 1.25 million hectares of State Forest and Timber Reserve to Protected
Areas in the Brigalow area. Dr Keto detailed concerns about the damage caused
by returning this land for timber production and grazing:
The ARCS report detailed the plight of woodland birds across
eastern Australia and identified the importance of the forests and woodlands of
the Southern Brigalow region in Queensland. The value of these forests and
woodlands to birds is severely impacted by grazing especially the practice of
regular intensive burning to maintain a grassy understorey preventing the
regeneration of a shrubby understorey that provides essential habitat. One in
four temperate woodland-dependent bird species is listed as threatened or declining,
with the Brigalow bioregion the most important remaining stronghold.
Similarly, Cooloola Community Action (CCA) raised concerns that the
Ramsar Convention is being ignored because of plans to discharge untreated mine
wastewater from the proposed Colton coal mine directly into the Mary River,
just upstream of the Ramsar-listed Great Sandy Strait wetlands. Further that
recent development of three LNG export terminals and one new coal port, and
proposals for further coal ports, within the GBRWHA demonstrate a distain for
the World Heritage Convention due to discharge of mining wastewater into the
Fitzroy River catchment, which flows into the Great Barrier Reef.
Mr Sean Hoobin from the WWF gave evidence that protections for the
GBRWHA have been eroded by both state and federal government:
Under the [World Heritage] convention, Australia has a duty
to ensure the identification, protection, conservation, presentation and
transmission to future generations of the cultural and natural heritage. It is
also stated it will do all it can to this end and to the utmost of its own
resources. I think it is arguable that Australia has not been meeting this
aspect of the convention. Currently, the World Heritage Committee is
considering listing the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage area as in danger
unless sufficient action is taken to address the condition and threats to the
Whilst Queensland is not the signatory, its role is critical,
and so are its policies and practices, as many of the actions it deals with
have a huge impact on the Great Barrier Reef. The Queensland government has
recognised this and has undertaken a strategic assessment and has also
participated in the development of Reef 2050, which is the plan for the
long-term sustainable development of the Great Barrier Reef. Both these were
intended to assure the World Heritage Committee that the reef is being well
managed. In these documents the Queensland government makes a number of claims
about the adequacy of its management and its commitments to improve management.
However, rather than improve policies and practices to protect the reef, the
Queensland government in the last three years has significantly weakened these,
flying in the face of Australia's obligations under international environmental
law. The committee notes that Queensland's biodiversity is unique and of
international importance, and is concerned by these and other issues raised
about activities being undertaken that are contrary to Australia's
international environmental obligations.
The evidence outlined in this report indicates serious concerns exist
that Queensland is not meeting Australia's international environmental
obligations under a range of instruments. The committee shares the concerns of
individual submitters, and expert organisations, that the Queensland government
should observe Australia's environmental obligations, and take steps to protect
Delegation of powers
Numerous submitters and witnesses, each concerned with different aspects
of the Queensland environment, indicated they believe it is inappropriate for
the Federal Minister for the Environment to delegate his approval powers to the
Queensland State Government under the Environment Protection and
Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).
Mr Innes Larkin of Keep the Scenic Rim Scenic summarised his views,
...it is inappropriate for the Federal Minister to delegate his
approval powers to the Qld State Government under the EPBC act because it
places at risk areas of national and international significance.
Water tables do not recognise state boundaries, rivers do not
recognise state boundaries, World Heritage Listed National Parks do not
recognise state boundaries and tourists looking to see these international
treasures do not recognise state boundaries.
Mr Glenn Beutel, a resident of Acland, Queensland expressed concerns
about mining activities taking place in and around Acland, and decisions that
have been made by the former Queensland government in respect of large projects,
such as the Newhope Stage 3 mining project. He expressed concerns about the
devolution of powers by the federal government:
I believe that the recent removal of red and green tape by
the former state government is going to make what has happened in Acland happen
in much of rural Queensland that is affected by open-cut mining and coal seam
The Stradbroke Island Management Organisation (SIMO) expressed serious
concerns about amendments to the North Stradbroke Island Protection and
Sustainability Act, initiated by the former Queensland government, allowing
a mining company to seek a renewal of mining leases to 2035, despite an
original agreement that mineral sand mining would end by 2019. SIMO expressed a
strong view against delegation of approval powers to the Queensland state government.
SIMO believes it is inappropriate and ill-advised for the
approval powers of the Federal Minister for the Environment to be delegated to
the Queensland State Government. We are particularly concerned to ensure the
integrity of the RAMSAR sites in Moreton Bay and Islands. In our view, the
recent performance of the Queensland Government in regard to mineral sand
mining on NSI [North Stradbroke Island] reinforces our concerns that delegation
of federal environmental powers will lead to significant reductions in the
level of protection of internationally important environmental sites.
Mr Drew Hutton, President of Lock the Gate Alliance, spoke at length
about the problems associated with the lack of federal government oversight of
state decisions about large scale mining projects in Queensland. Mr Hutton
raised questions about the usefulness of Environmental Impact Statements (EIS)
and the approvals process, indicating that the federal government needs to take
more responsibility in these matters.
Where do we start? There are the assessments, for example,
that were given to the coal seam gas projects here in Queensland.
The federal government was placed in a corner by the state
government and gave their approval for that project despite the lack of that
vital material they needed to give federal approval. It is the same with the
water impacts, with the coal seam gas industry. The federal government did not
have that information and was backed into a corner by the state to give them
approval. Now the federal government, the Abbott government, is about to
relinquish their powers – they want to relinquish their powers – under the
Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act to the state
government that commenced these sorts of shenanigans in the approvals process.
Ms Georgina Woods, also from Lock the Gate Alliance, added:
[T]he points we raised about the handover of federal powers
are very relevant in that area because there are these continental-scale water
reso8urces like the Murray-Darling Basin, the Lake Eyre Basin, the Great
Artesian Basin. The Great Artesian Basin is under siege from mining not just in
Queensland. There is a need for federal-scale, Commonwealth-scale oversight so
that the states do not, as we say with the Murray-Darling, make their own rules
and their own laws and disadvantage states or other users downstream of that
In discussing the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, Mr Hoobin of
We have argued quite strongly in submissions to the World
Heritage Committee that the most recent Queensland government has rolled back a
whole range of significant environmental protections, and so it is hard to see
how it could be given further power over development approvals and could look
after the Great Barrier Reef and the outstanding universal value of the reef.
So we would be of the view that giving the Queensland government more power to
approve and condition development would lead to an increased risk of an
in-danger listing for the Great Barrier Reef, definitely.
The committee notes views that the power to make decisions about large
scale projects with potential to seriously effect Queensland's environment and
population, should not vest entirely with the state government. These views
reflect a broader notion that although CSG, coal and other resources are
physically located in Queensland, they are important to Australia as a whole,
as is the environment within which they are located.
Coal seam gas
The committee received submissions and heard evidence from numerous
individuals and organisations on a range of issues and concerns about CSG
mining in Queensland. This includes concerns about the location and proximity
of CSG gas wells to people.
The Queensland Government Department of National Resources and Mines,
provides information about CSG gas wells:
A gas well is a pressurised hole drilled in the ground,
reinforced with steel liners (well casing and production tubing), to extract
gas from underground seams. The casing is cemented into the ground and
underlying strata to ensure the well is isolated from all other rock strata
other than the coal seam reservoir producing the gas. At ground level the gas
well is fitted with a series of control valves, e.g. the well head.
It states that hydraulic fracturing (fracking) 'is the process of
creating or enlarging cracks in underground coal seams (usually by pumping
fluid) to increase the flow and recovery of gas out of a well' and occurs in
around 8% of Queensland's domestic CSG wells.
Tara and Chinchilla, Queensland
Tara and Chinchilla are rural towns in the Darling Downs region of
Queensland, north-west of Toowoomba. The area is traditionally agricultural,
producing meat, milk and a range of food crops. Coal mines, CSG wells and power
stations share the landscape, with mining exploration leases covering a large
proportion of the Darling Downs.
The map below shows the Darling Downs Region with aquifers and coal
related areas, including leases and exploration licences.
Figure 1: Acquifers, coal mining leases, coal exploration
licences and nominated coal areas in the Darling Downs region
The committee received submissions and heard from a number of private
citizens living in and around the Chinchilla and Tara areas of Queensland as
well as from several community based organisations. Both individuals and
organisations raised concerns about local CSG mining activities, and in
particular about the effects on the health and wellbeing of people and animals,
the effects on the environment and the difficulties experienced by landholders
in dealing with the CSG companies.
The map below shows the location of Tara and Chinchilla and the
concentration CSG wells in the area.
Image 2: CSG wells in the Darling Downs region
While CSG was raised repeatedly throughout the inquiry, during a hearing
in Toowoomba on 19 February 2015, the committee heard from a number of private
citizens about the effects of CSG mining activities on their lives. The
committee is troubled by evidence from Tara and Chinchilla residents about the
effects on the health and wellbeing of themselves, their families and their
animals, as a result of contamination they believe is caused by CSG mining
activities in their local area.
Evidence was provided by a number of local residents about changes in
their health and wellbeing that they link to local CSG mining activities. For
example, Mr John Jenkyn talked about testing conducted in and around his
house that has shown chemicals such as formaldehyde present in his home. He
says he and his family are unable to drink the water from their rainwater tank
due to contamination, and that the disruptions, noise, light, odours, and dust
contamination have all contributed to the family's stress and other health
I would say that I am a father of two adult disabled children
who moved out into the Tara-Chinchilla area 10 years ago, just for quality of
life. Within that time, QGC have moved in and have put in major infrastructure
– there is a reverse osmosis plant; I think there are four banks of compression
stations around us now; there are probably 200 gas wells – which has just impacted
severely on everybody's health in the area, as well as ours.
A number of people spoke about the impact on their ability to enjoy
their land and homes, whether because of noise, dust or unknown individuals
having access to their land and impacting the surrounding area. For example, Ms
Glennis Hammond spoke about sometimes driving six kilometres from her home to
sleep in her van because of the noise generated by CSG mining activities.
Mrs Veronica Laffy spoke about the negative impact on the ability of her
children to enjoy a safe space on the family's property:
There is a large impact on our personal amenity. We have six
children ranging in age from two to 15 years. One of our children has Downs
syndrome, so it is important for us that he has a safe place to live. Part of
what living with him involves is he may access the farm at any time. He can get
up at 5.30 in the morning and ride his motor bike up to the back of the farm
and back, which is awesome, but it is not awesome if there are people all over
the farm. Those people have not necessarily had background checks done, so you
would not really know the capacity of their involvement with children and what
that would mean for my children. So I would have to restrict their access to
our farm while that business was on our business.
Dr Geralyn McCarron, General Practitioner, submitted that there is a
mismatch between notions of development in the area of Tara, and the reality of
people having to live in the midst of the CSG mining industry.
These major projects are often described as “development” but
their introduction has not brought better quality of life or additional
services to the local people. The residents live on rural blocks ranging in
size typically from 30 to 250 acres. They are surrounded by the infrastructure
of the gas industry. There are no shops, petrol stations, schools or other
basic facilities. The nearest doctor is in Tara which is an approximately 70km
round trip. Residents habitually travel to medical facilities in Chinchilla, Dalby
and Toowoomba where the regional base hospital is located.
Mr Joseph Hill was one of several individuals who shared anecdotes about
visits to his property by CSG mining company employees seeking access to his
land, and the problems he has had in this respect. When asked whether he had
gas wells on his land, he said: 'No. I have taken the stand, as I said, since
2009, of standing up to them and using my constitutional rights to keep them
Further, as a beef farmer, Mr Hill raised concerns about contamination
of overland water suppliesand
about pests, weeds and soil-borne diseases that can be brought onto private
land by vehicles.
Mr George Bender, a pig farmer, provided evidence about bores on his
land that have dried up and now release methane gas and of pigs dying from
heart attacks, which has never previously occurred. Mr Bender maintains that
there is a link between these unusual events and local CSG mining activities.
I am George Bender from Hopeland, which is about 22 kays
south of Chinchilla. I have lived in that district all my life. We have been
dealing with the coal seam gas company since 2006 actually; but, more recently,
it is about what the gas is doing to the underground water. We have two bores
in Walloon Coal Measures, and the water is gone. Those bores are only releasing
methane at the moment. We measured them on Tuesday, and the methane that is in
them now is above explosive limits. That is all caused by the coal seam gas
industry, no ifs or buts about it. The water impact reports said there are 85
bores in the immediately affected area that the companies had to make good on.
When asked to provide specific details about the sort of health issues
he was talking about, Mr Bender provided the following information:
It is not only human health; it is animal health. I own a
piggery. I have had pigs all my life and there are some things happening that I
have never seen happen before.
You go down to feed your pigs in the morning and come back
half an hour later—and they are gasping for breath.
They just die like that—heart attack. I cannot prove it is
coming from the gas industry or whatever, but you people should come out there
and watch these flares. What is coming in with these flares? The government
will not tell us and the industry will not tell us.
These and other anecdotes raise questions about why these things are
happening in such a localised area, and whether they are in fact directly
related to the local CSG mining activities. Certainly, the residents of Tara
and Chinchilla believe they are, particularly given the timing and scale of the
health and other problems now being experienced in the area.
Dr McCarron is a General Practitioner who conducted a health survey in
Tara and produced a report outlining her findings.
She collected data on how often local residents experienced things such as skin
and eye irritation, spontaneous nose bleeds, nausea and headaches, both before
and after CSG.
Dr McCarron makes the point about her survey:
This small survey is not a comprehensive epidemiological
study. However it does refute the assertion that “just a handful of people are
complaining that their health is affected by CSG.” Furthermore, the character
and frequency of specific health complaints, particularly relating to potential
neurotoxicity in both children and adults are concerning.
Dr McCarron also expressed concern that the Queensland government has
not sufficiently considered the health effects on people of CSG in the Tara
area. This is despite a commitment in June 2012 to investigate the growing
health complaints of residents. Dr McCarron noted in her submission in relation
to the Queensland government's investigation of health effects of CSG:
Between June 2012 and March 2013, no doctor employed by the
Queensland Government visited the residential estates to speak to the
residents. The township of Tara was the closest that the Queensland Government
doctors got to the source of the health complaints. Considering they were
investigating the health impacts of living in a gas development it is somewhat
surprising that no on-site visits were made.
In the nine months available to them, the Queensland
Government Departments failed to establish a comprehensive, systematic long
term testing regime to monitor potential chronic exposure to air or water borne
toxins. Instead they commissioned QGC, the gas company at the heart of the
residents’ health complaints, to undertake testing, creating a clear conflict
of interest. Sampling, which occurred as one off events at nine residences, was
entirely inadequate in scope and duration. Importantly, what is missing are
analyses of the gases produced in the localities concerned by flaring, well
leakages and pipeline venting.
In relation to the way in which the Queensland government conducted its
investigation in the area, Dr McCarron expressed the view:
[I] reluctantly concluded that the Government had no real
commitment to investigate public health complaints related to CSG development.
As a general practitioner, I was concerned about the potential long-term damage
being done to the health of the people living in the residential estates. I
decided to carry out my own study to clarify whether or not the implication
that only a “handful” of people perceived health impacts was true, and then to
document these perceived health impacts.
Of concern to this committee is the lack of information about the link
between CSG mining activities and the health and other impacts already being
experienced in places such as Tara and Chinchilla. When asked about where there
is information about the consequences and outcomes of CSG mining, Mr Sean
Hoobin of WWF stated:
The main issue is that no-one knows what the impacts of
mining and CSG, and the impacts on groundwater, will be. The government is
operating in a vacuum. Mining companies are operating in an information vacuum.
A related issue raised is that the concerns of residents are largely
being ignored by the CSG companies, who are increasingly difficult to deal
with, and engage in behaviour that could be categorised as intimidating and a
Mrs Laffy gave evidence that as fourth generation farmers, trying to run
an organic farm in Dalby, she is concerned about the power imbalance that
exists in dealing with CSG companies and the government.
We are very concerned about the power imbalance that exists
when we are forced into negotiations with CSG companies and the government,
because the government has written the legislation that forces us to have to
negotiate. In our negotiations between 2009 and 2013 we have had to negotiate
with two different CSG companies, and the negotiations essentially involve us
agreeing to what they put in front of us or they threaten to take us to Land
Court. In my view that is not negotiating. They constantly intimidate us—it is
monetary intimidation because the cost of going to court would be in the
hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Mr Jenkyn described the challenges he has faced in trying to deal with
the state government:
Really, I do not know what to say. It does not matter where
we go or who we deal with, nothing ever seems to happen. I have independent
testing that tells me it is not really good to live where we live and that you
cannot drink our water. You are flat-out just breathing the air some days, but
the government departments still sit on their hands – either that, or they deny
The committee also notes serious concerns raised by Mr Drew Hutton, that
people affected by decisions about mining, are being denied a right to object,
which effectively renders them powerless.
What it basically means is that it is virtually impossible
for any but a very, very small minority of Queenslanders to object to a mining
project in court. They cannot object. They have no appeal rights, whether it is
a small mine, whether it is a large mine or whether it is a mine that goes
through the Coordinator-General's department. They have no rights to object or
have their appeals heard in court.
This government is shelving the rights of ordinary
Queenslanders to have a say – even to the point, by the way, where the Newman
government has introduced changes to the role of the Coordinator-General where
he can designate a development as 'medium risk'.
The evidence received by the committee suggests a widespread belief in
the Tara-Chinchilla area that CSG mining is taking a significant toll on the
health of the local population. Further, that there is an imbalance of power
which has left residents at the mercy of large, well-funded companies who
routinely ignore the rights of local residents.
The evidence also suggests there may be inadequate government support
available to residents affected by the CSG wells and related activities in
their local area. This is of concern to the committee, which is of the view
that the health and wellbeing of all Australians is paramount, and that
adequate resources should be in place to assist those facing health challenges.
The committee received evidence about a range of activities that have
the potential to negatively impact Queensland's unique and important
environment. Numerous community and other groups have been established in an
effort to draw attention to concerns and to try and protect areas of
international and local importance.
The committee commends all those who are committed to raising awareness
about the environment and it encourages community consultation and discussion
about any development that may impact the environment and communities.
The committee shares the view that the future of Queensland's
environment is of vital importance to all Australians and should be afforded
the protection of federal government oversight - the federal Minister for the
Environment should not delegate his powers to the state under the EPBC Act. To
do so would place into doubt the future of the Queensland environment and would
amount to an abrogation of the Commonwealth's responsibility for matters of
national environmental significance.
Further, the committee is of the view that all levels of government
should take greater care when making decisions about projects that will impact
Queensland's environment. This should include engaging in open and transparent
community consultation and balancing economic development against the wishes of
the community and the need to protect the environment.
Specifically, the committee is of the view that more should be done to
ensure the health of individuals is monitored wherever there is CSG mining
activity, noting that CSG mining activities may also affect the practical
ability of people to enjoy their homes and properties due to noise, dust,
contamination and other disruptions.
It is of grave concern to the committee that the lives of so many
Queensland residents are being affected by decisions made about their
environment without adequate consultation, consideration for their wellbeing
and sometimes, apparently without respect for obligations to protect the
environment under international law instruments.
The committee recommends that the Queensland government ensure
all mining and other major development activities are consistent with
Australia's environment and social obligations under international
environmental instruments that Australia is a signatory to.
3.54 The committee recommends that the federal Minister for
the Environment does not delegate his powers under the Environment
Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
3.55 The committee recommends that the
Federal Minister for the Environment declare a moratorium on any new approvals
of Coal Seam Gas until an investigation is completed and reports back to
the Senate. The report should address the effects of Coal Seam Gas mining
activities in the Tara and Chinchilla areas on the health of local people,
animals and crops, groundwater and on the quality of soil, water and air, and
also investigate the disposal of effluent containing human faeces around
mining camps, local roads and agricultural land used for growing crops for
human consumption and the degradation of water reserves in these areas.
3.56 The committee recommends the Queensland government
undertake an immediate review of the Department of Environment and Heritage
Protection and its resource capabilities including staffing levels, expertise,
arms-length requirements and conflicts of interest to determine and establish
appropriate operating requirements for the delivery of quality outcomes for
stakeholders. Further, the committee recommends a thorough review of the
department to improve systems, processes, procedures, compliance, and
escalation of issues, transparency and reporting. Ideally, an independent body
should be established to manage escalated issues.
3.57 The committee recommends that the Queensland
Government complete a review of the Gasfields Commission Queensland including
roles, responsibilities, conflicts of interest and independence.
3.58 The committee recommends the Queensland government
review all legislation implemented by the Newman Government to determine its
appropriateness and compatibility with social justice/natural justice
requirements and other land ownership rights. Further the committee recommends
the review of mechanisms/instruments established by the Newman Government which
impose unjust and unfair limitations or requirements on land owners,
particularly in relation to land use/access issues.
3.59 The committee recommends that a royal commission be
established to investigate the human impact of Coal Seam Gas mining.
3.60 The committee recommends that a moratorium be called
and that no further Coal Seam Gas mining approvals be given until a full
investigation by the Federal Minister for the Environment has been completed
and reported back to the Senate on; the human health impacts, animal deaths,
crop contamination, drinking water and air quality, plus degradation of
the water supply in and around the Tara and Chinchilla area.
3.61 The committee recommends that a Resources Ombudsman
be established to provide Australians with an independent advocacy body.
The committee recommends that fracking be banned in Queensland.
