Coal seam gas oversight repeatedly cut by Newman government, cabinet documents reveal

The Newman government slashed oversight of the controversial coal seam gas (CSG) industry in Queensland despite warnings it would lead to serious non-compliance and to CSG companies "gambling" with safety.

One submission to cabinet, marked "urgent and unavoidable", actually argued for an increase in compliance funding.

It said funding cuts would be "poorly received by the community".
