The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the need to put in place a 12 month moratorium on coal seam gas projects due to adverse impact on prime agricultural land, drinking supplies and human health.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to put in place a 12 month moratorium on coal seam gas projects, while further scientific tests are carried out to ensure that the coal seam gas industry techniques pose no threat to prime agricultural land, drinking water and human health.
