Vast tracts of prime Australian agricultural land, remnant vegetation and culturally significant land, are being compulsorily acquired for thousands of kilometres of massive transmission lines, with poor consultation with landholders and local communities, and at exorbitant financial cost to the taxpayer and energy customers.

I ask for Members and Senators in the Australian Parliament to support a Senate Inquiry into energy transmission lines, particularly

(a) their impact on agricultural land, remnant native vegetation, and culturally significant land;
(b) the appropriateness and adequacy of consultation with affected landholders and communities; and
(c) whether the proposed transmission lines are an appropriate and justifiable expenditure of taxpayer and energy customer money.
