Why is there a rush to legislate the buffer at 1.5km if there is no evidence to support it? This proposed legislation ignores the concerns raised from the parliamentary inquiry, where land owners were not consulted or considered in this decision. Why haven't Alcoa stuck to their commitments to shut down their waste site at F lake. Why is the proposed legislation ignoring all these issues?
