'Critical': Allegations Government is delaying Adani
THE State Opposition has claimed the Palaszczuk Government's declaration of Adani's Carmichael coal mine as a "prescribed and critical infrastructure project". was just for publicity.
Shadow Mines Minister Andrew Cripps said a Question on Notice from the LNP Opposition revealed the Coordinator-General had not yet intervened to progress any approvals associated with Adani's project.
However in response State Development, Natural Resources and Mines Minister Anthony Lynham said the Coordinator-General had not formally intervened because in his assessment there had been no delays requiring his intervention.
The Carmichael mine is expected to generate hundreds of jobs.
