Defence – PFAS Pollution
After years of evidence concerning the level of pollution at the RAAF base Williamtown, near Newcastle, (and every other RAAF Base) the government has done virtual nothing. This problem is in every Defence Air base in Australia and potentially overseas as well. The actual response of Government has been: Do little – admit little – release little information
The years have gone by without action and not only in Williamtown but at every RAAF Base in Australia, we at the Christian Democratic Party are committed to:
- Full and urgent compensation and health checks of all potential victims;
- The urgent withdrawal of the toxic foam from any use in Australia;
- The urgent containment of all the polluted areas;
- The urgent funding of research into the rehabilitation of all contaminated areas.
