Today in Parliament, Paul Llewellyn MLC will ask the following question to the Minister for Environment :

In relation to the controversial proposal by Magellan Metals Pty Ltd to ship lead carbonate through the Port of Fremantle and to transport it through many highly populated suburbs, I ask:

  1. Will the Minister impose an additional requirement on Magellan Metals to process the lead into solid ingot form at the mine site before transportation, to avoid the public safety risks associated with the transportation of lead carbonate?

  2. If no to (1), why not?

Paul Llewellyn says “It’s quite unbelievable that the Environment Minister has rushed through this new proposal to export lead through Fremantle, given that this same company has very recently left a contaminated mess at Esperance.”

“The WA Government is still in the process of implementing the recommendations from the Esperance Inquiry so this new approval is premature.”

“The 2007 Esperance Inquiry found that Magellen breached many of its commitments in relation to sampling and dust monitoring at Esperance, so why should the public trust this company to honour similar commitments now?”

“The Perth community has well and truly been ambushed by this – the Greens are calling on the State Government to urgently reign in this proposal so that it can be reconsidered with public health and safety as the number 1 priority.”
