Resources Minister Matt Canavan has criticised comments made by Labor MP Richard Marles about the coal industry. Marles said the decline of the global thermal coal industry is "a good thing" as it implies that action is being taken to address climate change. Canavan argues that both coal prices and demand for coal are strong, and he says Marles’ comments show that Labor wants to shut down Australia’s largest export industry with the loss of more than 50,000 jobs. Marles later sought to clarify his comments.
