Rowan Dean commentary | The Outsiders

Dean recalls 4.5 years ago in February 2017, former Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison held a black coal lump during a Parliamentary proceeding, defending its importance.

Mrs Rinehart said costings should be the first priority and urged the Federal Government to “stand firm” until these had been properly assessed and made public.
