GetUp slams hir­ing of lob­by­ist

The Observer - - NEWS NATION -

AC­TIVIST group GetUp has slammed the hir­ing of Adani coal mine lob­by­ist Cameron Mil­ner to help the gov­ern­ment of An­nasta­cia Palaszczuk (pic­tured) run her Queens­land elec­tion cam­paign. The Aus­tralian re­ports that af­ter play­ing a role in her 2015 elec­tion win, Mr Mil­ner is back at La­bor head­quar­ters. “The Palaszczuk Gov­ern­ment is mak­ing de­ci­sions about Adani’s roy­al­ties, in­fra­struc­ture and en­vi­ron­men­tal ap­provals. It’s a mas­sive con­flict of in­ter­est to have Adani’s lob­by­ist en­gaged in her elec­tion cam­paign,” GetUp spokesman Sam Regester said.
