Federal Labor MP for Richmond Justine Elliot has joined the condemnation of the NSW Liberal and National parties over the approval of the Local Land Services Amendment (Miscellaneous) bill 2020 in the Lower House of the NSW government.
Ms Elliot has also condemned ‘Tweed Nationals MP Geoff Provest and his disgraced Liberal-National Party who voted for laws that will see the widespread killing of our precious koalas on the North Coast’.
‘The Liberal-National Government have voted for the Local Land Services Amendment Bill in the NSW Parliament which will allow private rural landholders and property developers to kill our koalas through widespread land clearing,’ said Ms Elliot.
‘Their pro-development legislation removes protection for our koalas and now means mass destruction of our koala habitats and the killing of precious koalas.
‘In the past week we’ve seen shocking evidence at the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) confirming that Premier Gladys Berejiklian turned a blind eye to the corrupt business dealings of her boyfriend Liberal MP Daryl Maguire and didn’t report this to ICAC.
‘Now we’re seeing a shameful act of environmental vandalism by Geoff Provest, his Premier and his developer mates – they’re a disgraceful rotten Government with no integrity,’ Ms Elliot said.
