Jeremy Buckingham to take on Gareth Ward at coal seam gas meeting tonight
9 April 2013
The Greens NSW spokesperson on mining Jeremy Buckingham will take on the Member for Kiama, Gareth Ward tonight at a community meeting on coal seam gas in Gerringong.
“Gareth Ward’s government recently renewed the coal seam gas licence PEL 469, which covers from Wollongong to Sussex Inlet and inland to Mittagong, however, Mr Ward is pretending he is against coal seam gas. He can’t have it both ways. You can’t renew an exploration licence then say you are opposed to coal seam gas,” said Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham.
“Gareth Ward needs to come clean with the people of his electorate and tell them whether he’s for or against coal seam gas.”
