Labor Leader Anthony Albanese has said he will support the Adani coal mine if it gets all its environmental approvals.

The construction of the Adani coal mine has been continuously blocked by the Queensland Labor government.

Now, the Queensland government has approved a crucial environmental plan to protect the endangered black-throated finch.

If a groundwater management plan is approved, then the project will be given a go-ahead by the government.

Mr Albanese tells Chris Smith he will support the construction of Adani if it passes environmental tests.

“Projects have to be approved under environmental approvals.

“This is not a government mine, this is a private sector project.”
