Petroleum and Other Minerals Development (Amendment) Bill 2013: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the Petroleum and Other Minerals Development Act 1960 to ban unconventional gas exploration and extraction, provide for social clauses and public consultation on the granting of leases and ensure greater accountability through initiating an annual review of the lease by the Joint Committee on Communications, Energy and Natural Resources.

Is the Bill opposed?

Question put and agreed to.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.

I move: "That the Bill be taken in Private Members' time."

Question put and agreed to.
