The petition of electors of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House our demand that no mining activity be permitted closer than 15 kilometres to the gazetted town boundary of any town in Queensland.

 

Your petitioners therefore request the House to reject any mining application which does not comply with the above requirement.
