Founder of uranium industry lobby group chosen for South Australian “independent” nuclear consultation agency

Agius, Parry

The South Australian government will make the decision on whether or not to make that State become the world’s nuclear toilet.

However, they’ll still go through a process of informing and consulting the community, beforehand. That will be the job of the new Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission Consultation and Response Agency :-

It will “draw upon existing government expertise and expertise from the Royal Commission itself to to increase awareness of the Royal Commission’s report and facilitate the community consultation process.”

The other one, Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission Consultation and Response Advisory Board, will oversee the Agency throughout the consultation process. That’s the one chaired by John Mansfield, and with Adjunct Professor Daniela Stehlik,  Rebecca Huntley, Professor Deb White, and Parry Agius.

I don’t think that Parry Agius should be on this supposedly independent Board. He is  a founding member of the Australian Uranium Association’s Indigenous Dialogue Group. He’s also been a member of the Resources Industry Development Board in South Australia.
