Final Report Due

CLIVE PALMER: promised that the Hunter region will get to keep more of the mining profits it generates, if he wins power at the September Federal election. He promised a figure of at least 25 %

"We would take the mineral wealth we've got in Queensland and Western Australia and we would make sure there incentives to establish downstream manufacturing industries in places like the Hunter," he said.
"We think if a region like the Hunter is generating wealth for the nation, which it is, at least 25 per cent of that wealth should be spent back in the Hunter where people's needs need to be met.
