The modelling for net zero by 2050 was “finalised” at the time Scott Morrison signed off for the target when the Nationals gave the green light, according to Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce.

“The Prime Minister has just handed me the actual quote, which I think is very important,” Mr Joyce told the House of Representative.

“We just need to take a little extra time to ensure that it is written up clearly and able to be presented well to the Australian public.

“So, when you read it in its entirety, it is entirely different to the proposition that the opposition putting forward to this house, and it goes to show you how, at times, how sneaky, sneaky they can be.

“And because you see they’re snaky, they’ll probably be very sneaky with the legislation that they intend to bring forward and the sneaky legislation they intend to bring forward will legislate, unless they tell us otherwise, people will be out of a job.”
