Local Labor always opposed u-mine at Angela Pamela: Araluen ALP candidate Adam Findlay

CLP incumbent Robyn Lambley says it's a non-issue: she also opposes a u-mine 'on top of the water table'

 

The Labor Government might have a  credibility problem with its stance on a possible future uranium mine at Angela Pamela, but the local branch of the Labor Party does not: "We were always at odds with the government over their support for the exploration process on that site so close to town," says Labor's candidate for Araluen, Adam Findlay (left).

But the Country Liberals' incumbent Robyn Lambley (right) says Mr Findlay will struggle to make this an issue in the campaign as there is "no point of difference" between them: "There's no way in the world that I could ever support a uranium mine on top of the water table in Alice Springs unless its safety could be demonstrated beyond a shred of a doubt." KIERAN FINNANE speaks to the two contenders for the seat of Araluen in August's Legislative Assembly election.
