Independent MP speaks on Dutton’s Election Promise to Defund EDO

Last week, Opposition Leader Peter Dutton promised to defund the Environmental Defenders Office if the coalition wins next year’s federal election.

The EDO is an environmental legal centre, running litigation and offering legal support in climate change and environmental cases. 

The election promise follows recent criticism of the EDO’s conduct in court regarding witness coaching, and according Dutton, the EDO is preventing new projects from developing.
