Australian news, and some related international items

Need to reveal full details of nomination forms for Kimba and Wallerberdina nuclear waste dump plans

Full copies of the nomination forms by the respective owners of the site at Wallerberdina and the five or six sites at Kimba should be publicly known

They should be full and true photocopies without redactions as apparently the original forms have handwriting on them which could be extremely embarrassing to the government and the responsible ministers Canavan and Pitt 

All of these nominations were under machinery provisions of the National Radioactive Waste Management Act 2012  but the form of the nomination and administrative requirements are contained in the Radioactive Waste Management Nominations of Land: Guidelines  November 2016 issued by the then Department of Industry Innovation and Science 

Previous requests for the nominations were met with the standard response that they could not be disclosed as they contained personal and private information of the respective parties nominating their land but instructions note 8 in the nomination form prescribed by the Guidelines specifically states that the Nominator confirms that it consents to the public disclosure of the nomination ……

In addition the Guidelines contain quite detailed provisions regarding disclosures and privacy including the operation of the freedom of information regime . The nominations requested will also be of significance in any judicial review or similar proceedings .
