Burke warns against Adani mine opposition

Australia

Labor environment spokesman Tony Burke warns he will fiercely oppose any push to make stopping a Queensland coalmine ALP policy.

The issue is expected to be raised at the party’s national conference, which begins in Adelaide on Sunday, with some groups calling for Labor to formally oppose the proposed Adani mine.

“There are a series of problems with this project but the only commitment I will make – and I will fiercely resist conference pushing for anything else – is that we will apply Australian environmental law,” Mr Burke told Sky News on Tuesday.
