‘Gobsmacked’: There was no ‘meaningful consultation’ about Qld .’s new coal royalty tax

Bowen Coking’s chief executive officer, Nick Jorss, says the industry has been “amazed” at Queensland’s new coal revenue scheme.

The Queensland government has increased coal revenue, it announced in the state budget on Tuesday.

I mean, there’s been some talk over the past two weeks,” Mr. Gorse told Sky News host Peta Kreidlin.

“But there is no idea that there is anything of this magnitude in the pipeline, I mean, this is now the highest ownership system in the world.

“It’s fair to say we were very shocked, and there were no meaningful consultations.”
