Opposition demands air quality monitoring sites for Stockton and Mayfield

-->

The NSW Labor Opposition is demanding the O'Farrell Government introduce 24-hour air quality monitoring at Stockton and Mayfield following the Orica chemical leak.

"The NSW Labor Opposition is calling on Environment Minister Robyn Parker to immediately deliver air quality monitoring sites at Stockton and Mayfield following the Orica chemical leak," Shadow Environment Minister, Luke Foley said.

"Air quality monitoring sites will provide reliable, real time data on air quality in Stockton and Mayfield.

"After her abysmal handling of the Orica incident so far, the least Robyn Parker can do is deliver 24-hour air quality monitoring for Stockton and Mayfield."

The Labor Opposition will be launching a petition calling for the air monitoring sites at Stockton and Mayfield this weekend.

Mr Foley has also formally introduced a motion to the NSW Legislative Council calling on the O'Farrell Government to immediately place air quality monitoring sites at Stockton and Mayfield.
