The WA Na­tion­als have crit­i­cised a 700-bed Wood­side work­ers' camp planned for Kar­ratha, say­ing it would un­der­mine com­mu­nity con­fi­dence and lo­cal in­vest­ment.

Bad idea for Kar­ratha to have more FIFO. More lo­cal res­i­dence is what is needed. FIFO does noth­ing for the town. Clin­ton Kimp­ton

FIFO is here to stay, get used to it. Min­ers have al­ways moved to where their work takes them, way be­fore FIFO started. Ma­rina Hay­ward

Bloody good job, use the ac­com­mo­da­tion al­ready there. We are meant to be build­ing up these towns, not cre­at­ing more work­ers to fly in and then F off, with­out hav­ing any con­sid­er­a­tion for the towns and com­mu­ni­ties to con­tinue to ex­ist and grow. Noeleen Bode

Fam­i­lies in need of work would re­lo­cate. That is the en­tire point. Peo­ple aren't liv­ing in the town. Many more would if that was how em­ploy­ment was of­fered. Sonya Math­e­son

An up­com­ing in­quiry by the Eco­nom­ics and In­dus­try Stand­ing Com­mit­tee will look into the cost of re­gional air­fares and ex­am­ine the im­pact on com­mu­ni­ties, busi­nesses and tourism within WA re­gions.

Imag­ine how many tourists will not come to see the Kim­ber­ley re­gion with the high fees sched­uled for ac­cess. Don't dis­agree with a fee but it's a fine bal­anc­ing act be­tween pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive growth fig­ures. Time will tell all. Pop Davey

Imag­ine how many more tourists would check out places like Kar­i­jini if the air­fare to New­man wasn't more than what they paid to come to Aus­tralia from the other side of the world in the first place. Daniel Romero

There will be no change. The air­lines been over charg­ing for 50 years that I know of. Shaen John­ston
