Pass the coal …

CLIMATE Change Minister Greg Combet is on the witness list for an anti-corruption inquiry today, to answer questions about a glowing letter he wrote to disgraced former NSW mining minister Ian Macdonald supporting the controversial Doyles Creek mine.

Mr Combet will become the most senior Gillard government member to give evidence to the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption when he appears on May 3, as it continues to investigate the allegedly corrupt process that led to the awarding of the Doyles Creek mine licence.

He will be asked to give an account of his involvement with the project and its leading figures currently being investigated for corruption, including Mr Macdonald, former union boss John Maitland and Newcastle businessman Craig Ransley.

Obviously looked into the proposal carefully … good quality in a climate change minister.
