There’s a push from within the W-A Liberal Party to pressure the federal government to hold a Royal Commission into the science of climate change. (my bold)
The proposal will be put forward by the party’s Rural Policy Committee at the Liberal state conference in Perth next month.
Other motions to be debated include one from the Fremantle division calling on the State and Federal governments to fund and start construction on the Roe Highway extension.
It comes after the Premier Colin Barnett revealed the project is unlikely to go ahead during this term.
There’ll also be a push from the Union of Liberal Students to support changing the Fair Work Act to introduce statutory individual agreements.
Policy motions passed at state conference are not binding.
