'F for Fail': Legal analysis of the implementation of NT Fracking Inquiry recommendations

New forensic legal analysis has revealed stark failings in the NT Government’s implementation of Justice Pepper’s recommendations from the NT Fracking Inquiry.

Chief Minister Gunner has repeatedly promised to implement all recommendations in full – including in the lead-up to the last election.
