South Australia Branch Secretary Jamie Newlyn was a witness to the Senate Economics Legislation Committee inquiry into National Radioactive Waste Management Amendments (Site Specification, Community Fund and Other Measures) Bill 2020.
The SA Branch made a submission in March 2020 in opposition to the Federal Government declaring Kimba in South Australia as the site selection area for Radioactive waste. Consequently, Comrade Newlyn informed the Senate Committee into the reasons for the MUA opposition to the proposed legislation, including:
There has never been an argument that we need to be responsible for our own nuclear waste. The argument is about process, consultation, community consent, safety and respect for Traditional Owners voices and opposition. Do it once, do it right!
