Government warned indecision could harm the Reef

The Queensland Resources Council is warning the state government that their inaction is jeopardising deliberations over the future of the Great Barrier Reef.

The World Heritage Committee is assessing whether the reef should be listed as "in danger" in a report due at the end of the month.

QRC chief executive Michael Roche said the report recommendation would depend on whether or not the government would sign off on new legislation, which commits to restricting port development for the next 10 years.
