Closing Date: 1/03/2013

Tabled Date: 5/03/2013

Responded By: Hon Andrew Powell MP on 3/04/2013

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House their concerns about reports of coal dust deposits emanating from coal wagons and the coal stockpile at the Port of Brisbane. Your petitioners raise additional concerns that while tests confirm that 40% of the pollution at a residence in Wynnum North has been identified as coal dust, the other 60% remains unaccounted for.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to take immediate action to reduce the amount of coal dust and other air pollution in the Wynnum Manly district and surrounding suburbs.
