On 25 June 15 the Senate Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee released its report on “Australia's Transport Energy Resilience and Sustainability.”  This issue affects us all and the Report makes three recommendations to the Australian Government.  John Blackburn was instrumental in raising the issue of transport fuel security in his ground breaking work with NRMA, which was confronting and compelling in the picture it painted.  John will reflect on the outcomes of the Senate inquiry and the potential next steps in securing Australia’s liquid fuel security.

Air Vice-Marshal John Blackburn AO (Retired). 

John retired from the Royal Australian Air Force in 2008 as Deputy Chief of Air Force.
