At 2pm March 18th the Queensland Uranium Implementation Report is expected to be released by the LNP government. This report is expected to give the green light for uranium mining in Queensland. In October 2012 the LNP government broke its clear commitment not to allow uranium mining in Queensland. This commitment was the position of the LNP at the March 2012 state election and was reaffirmed after they took office. In the absence of open, inclusive and evidence based policy making the Newman LNP government has set up the Uranium Implementation Committee.
