I’m proud to be part of a Liberal Party intent on stopping South Australia from becoming the world’s nuclear waste dump. 

 

This harebrained scheme was cooked up by a Labor Government desperate to be seen as showing ‘leadership’ no matter if the road we’re led down is to economic and environmental ruin.

I undertook to survey my community about this issue and the results showed that approximately 65 percent of people are opposed to the concept of the dump, which is consistent with the results of the government’s consultation – mind you, my consultation didn’t cost over $8 million and, unlike the government, I’m not ignoring the results!

We are all baffled by Jay Weatherill’s push for a referendum – another expensive exercise – when we believe that South Australians have already made it abundantly clear that they do not support this idea. 

The Liberal Party will ensure no more money is wasted pursuing this idea if we are elected to government.
