Michelle Landry and George Christensen are among six National Party MPs who have called for the federal government to press ahead with legislation to force energy companies to divest assets if they fail to reduce electricity prices. The legislation was recently put on hold, but the six Nationals MPs want it to be debated by parliament in April. They also want the government to agree to underwrite a new power generation project in regional Queensland prior to the upcoming election, and some have expressed a preference for a clean coal plant.
