LNP demands Parliamentary mine safety inquiry

Published:

The LNP has called for a full Parliamentary inquiry into safety in the Queensland resources industry following the release of Dr Sean Brady's report today.

Shadow Mines Minister Dale Last said the report highlighted major failures in the industry and the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

"The Palaszczuk Labor Government and the mining industry both need to lift their game when it comes to safety," Mr Last said.

"The report damns Labor for overseeing a mine safety regulator that made it hard for miners and industry to report issues.

"A failure to take incidents seriously, or even report them, is the root cause of the problem.

"The report is very clear that without a full inquiry into mine safety Queenslanders will continue to die and be injured in our mines.

"As was the case with the Black Dust, White Lies inquiry, only a full Parliamentary inquiry into mine safety will tell us what is wrong and provide a way forward.

"A full Parliamentary inquiry will allow us to hold those responsible to account.

"It is absolutely essential that Labor listen and act on these findings."
