Liberal leader and Shadow Minister for State Development Liza Harvey has expressed concerns about the closure of the BP oil refinery in Kwinana.

“My thoughts go out to all the 650 workers at the refinery in these uncertain times,”Ms Harvey said.

“What the COVID-19pandemic has taught us is that we need more security of critical and strategic resources to manage unforeseen global events, not less.

“We need to be more self-reliant in Western Australia. With the announcement today that the BP oil refinery in Kwinana will close we will now be completely reliant on importing petrol from interstate and overseas for our domestic fuel security.

“Under a Liberal Government securing and sustaining critical and strategic resources will be a high priority.”
