Northern Territory Shadow Minister for Environment Peter Chandler
A Discharge Of Responsibilities
Victor P Taffa
It appears the only thing that can be assured under the Henderson Labor Government is a failure to follow transparent monitoring and reporting programs and an inability to find the cause of Darwin Harbour Pollution Shadow Environment Minister Peter Chandler said today.
“As another week passes with elevated E Coli and enterococci bacteria pollution at Nightcliff and Mindil beaches, the Minister for Health remains silent.” Mr. Chandler said.
“The Country Liberals continue with a message of warning to Top End Residents.”
“Stay out of the water at beaches from Darwin to Casuarina, not only because of the danger of box jellyfish, but because the water itself poses a serious hazard to health.” Mr. Chandler said.
“It is now six months since the whistle was blown about water contamination by Darwin City Council.”
“Not only is a Territory Government Plan of Action needed, a Territory Government of Action is Overdue.” Mr. Chandler said.
