Shooters and Fishers tells NSW Premier O'Farrell his CSG amendments won't pass in parliament

15 Nov 2013 - Shooters and Fishers Party MP, Robert Brown, says the O'Farrell government's soon-to-be introduced amendments to the Onshore Petroleum Act won't get the support of his cross-benches unless there are changes.

Robert Brown says, while there's broad support for the legislation from the Shooters and Fishers, there's problem areas that need to be fixed.

"Well, the Shooters and Fishers Party, our views are very clear on this bill, which is the Onshore Petroleum Act Amendment Bill," he said.

"We have problems with Section 7, [which] describes an attempt to set up a system whereby the Minister can authorise access under a permit system, to any person to come onto private property."

Robert Brown says that does not sit comfortably with his Party because the Shooters and Fishers support individual property rights under both Commonwealth or State law.

"In reality, what the government needs to do if they want to put forward bills like this, is they have to consider equitable arrangements for property owners," he said.

"Give the farmers the right to 'lock the gate' but, at the same time, give the farmers the right to access some of the government royalties on the stuff that's under their ground; if the government's going to get five per cent royalties give half to the farmer."

"The farmer could make up his mind whether he wants to take advantage of that offer or whether he wants to just keep farming and keep people off his property," he said.
