MINISTER SINGH ON OIL SPILL RECOVERY

Certain oil clean-up operations can cause harm to different types of marine habitat in different ways, says the Environment Minister.

He made the declaration in the Senate in response to the oil spills along the south western peninsula first discovered last December.

And he says that a task force set up to examine the spills will be looking at what caused them, despite claims by the OWTU that this isn't so.
