Nats won’t back down to miners

The Nationals WA will continue to demand that mining giants BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto pay more to mine iron ore, despite the ferocious campaign the miners waged against the proposal in the lead up to the March state election.

The campaign led to the defeat of (then) Nationals leader Brendon Grylls in his seat of Pilbara, however, new leader Mia Davies says there will be no backing down.

“I don’t much like bullies,” Ms Davies told Business News.
