Clive Palmer mine lockdown ‘doesn’t help’ inflationary crisis: Canavan

Environment Minister Tanya Pliebersek’s decision to reject Clive Palmer’s proposal for a coal mine in Queensland “does nothing to help” the current inflationary crisis, says National Party Senator Matt Canavan.

“Tani’s whole solution will be to take Australian families out of housekeeping jobs,” Canavan told Sky News Australia.

“To help deal with inflation, we need a more productive economy, and decisions like this will also harm it.”
