TUESDAY March 20, 2018: Thousands of submissions were made to the WA Fracking Inquiry before it closed its public comment period yesterday, March 19.
The inquiry will now spend many months assessing the submissions before making recommendations to the State Government on the future of fracking in Western Australia.
The Lock the Gate Alliance has called on the inquiry to release an interim report and open that to public comment prior to the final report but as yet has not received a reply to its request.
The WA Fracking Inquiry is scheduled to pass its findings to the WA Government by the end of August.
