Minister - Stop the National Energy Guarantee


Lidia Thorpe - Question in Parliament — My question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Since the South Australian Labor government was defeated, the ACT Greens-Labor government is the lone voice at the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), standing up against the National Energy Guarantee (NEG), a Liberal plan that will curtail renewables and lock in coal. Minister, will you stand with ACT Minister Rattenbury at the upcoming COAG meeting and block the NEG?

Supplementary question: Will one of the conditions for your support of the NEG be that it provides for a rapid transition out of coal?
