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.

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