Statement On Fracking Moratorium

Victor P Taffa

Today Territory Labor fulfilled its election commitment to implement a moratorium on fracking, Chief Minister Michael Gunner said.

“Claims made today that Territory Labor has not fulfilled its commitment to implement a moratorium on fracking are wrong.”

“We have implemented a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing for exploration and extraction across the whole of the Territory, while an independent scientific investigation and public consultation is undertaken.”

“It is exactly what we promised to do before the election. It’s exactly what I announced today.” Chief Minister Gunner said.
