Interim report presented on unconventional gas

Gas

The Environment and Planning Committee tabled an interim report in the Legislative Council on 1 September 2015 about the inquiry into unconventional gas in Victoria.

The Committee received over 1,700 written submissions, and to date has heard from 57 groups and individuals. Further hearings are planned, with a hearing scheduled in Hamilton on 23 September 2015.

Committee Chair, Hon. David Davis, said many in the community had strong views on this topic, which is reflected in the number of submissions.

“The interim report brings together the evidence received to date about unconventional gas and the prospects of this industry in Victoria,” Mr Davis said.

“The Committee will continue with hearings and is required to table its final report by 1 December 2015.”

The interim report can be viewed on the Committee’s website.

The Committee will be continuing its inquiry with the next hearing on 2 September.
