Why Mr Abbott?

Australian passports and birth certificates will no longer be produced with Australian made paper, as the Shoalhaven region loses an iconic local industry with today's announcement by Australian Paper that it will close the Shoalhaven paper mill at Bomaderry.
The Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union, which campaigned to save the mill - the only paper mill in the country that makes security grade papers used by the Federal Government - said the closure was entirely avoidable.
With the deluge of unsafe imports from China looming if the China Australia Free Trade Agreement is signed, the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union is urging the Abbott Government to deliver on its election commitment to ensure that imported building products comply with Australian Standards.
The CFMEU is urging Senators through the Senate Estimates process to raise the matter with the ACCC – which is responsible for product regulation and the safety of consumers – and the Department of Industry, charged by the PM with addressing problems in the manufacturing sector.
The CFMEU is deeply saddened by reports a worker has died and another has been injured at Anglo American’s Dawson coal mine near Moura in Central Queensland.
The union is not yet able to confirm details of the accident but union inspectors were travelling to the site this morning to investigate, said CFMEU Mining and Energy Queensland President Stephen Smyth.
“We are extremely concerned that this is the third fatal accident at an Anglo American-owned coal mine in the last 12 months, said Mr Smyth.
