BILLS - Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility Bill 2016, Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2016 - In Committee

Senator MOORE (Queensland) (20:01): For the record, Labor will not be supporting this particular amendment but we do support the implementation of ecological sustainable development in project assessment. In our recent announcement, under a Labor government, Infrastructure Australia will be specifically tasked to include sustainability when assessing project proposals. As we know, Infrastructure Australia is a part of the intended process under the NAIF. This amendment is not necessary for inclusion in the legislation.

Question negatived.
