Frack­ing no help in WA

The Weekend Post - - Nation -

FRACK­ING will bring few jobs and lit­tle rev­enue to West­ern Aus­tralia, left-wing think­tank The Aus­tralia In­sti­tute says.

The McGowan Gov­ern­ment on Tues­day lifted its mora­to­rium on frack­ing, say­ing the prac­tice would be re­stricted to ex­ist­ing petroleum ti­tles in 2 per cent of the state.

The Aus­tralia In­sti­tute has pre­vi­ously had its re­search funded by con­ser­va­tion groups but says its re­port on the eco­nomic and so­cial im­pacts of a frack­ing in­dus­try in WA, re­leased yes­ter­day, is in­de­pen­dent.
