Environment Minister Melissa Price has indicated that the Federal Government will revive key elements of the Direct Action climate change policy of former prime minister Tony Abbott. Price says she supports the Direct Action policy but stresses that the government’s stance does not signal a return to Abbott-era policies. Amongst other things, Price will seek additional funding for the Emissions Reduction Fund, of which around $250m of its original funding has not yet been spent. Price has also proposed reactivating the Green Army program, which ended on 30 June.
