Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiry reopened
The Victorian Government has reopened the Hazelwood Mine Fire Inquiry to get to the bottom of community health concerns following the 2014 fire and consider rehabilitation at the Latrobe Valley’s coal mines. Minister for Resources, Lily D’Ambrosio, and Minister for Health, Jill Hennessy, joined Inquiry Board Members in the Latrobe Valley this morning to discuss the Inquiry’s new Terms of Reference with the community.
The Terms of Reference address concerns of a spike in deaths following the fire, as well as the option of mine rehabilitation at all three coal mines in the Latrobe Valley – Hazelwood, Yallourn and Loy Yang.
