Australian Prime Minister cites non-existent bill to show efforts on the environment
The Australian Prime Minister has seemingly cited a non-existent bill to show how he is helping to tackle the biodiversity crisis.
Earlier this week, the United Nations launched a report saying one million species are at danger of extinction in the next few decades.
When quizzed about the issue Morrison said:
“We already introduced and passed legislation through the Senate actually dealing with that very issue in the last week of the parliament.”
But The Guardian reports that no environmental or animal conservation legislation was passed in the last week of parliament.
He has since said he was referring to "a different piece of legislation, but in that same week there was the budget measure."
It seems the Australian Prime Minister is also against plans to expand the countries' electric vehicle supply.
Speaking to reporters he said, "[An electric vehicle] won't tow your trailer. It's not going to tow your boat. It's not going to get you out to your favourite camping spot with your family."
