Where the politicians stand on Oman Ama

SOUTHERN Downs MP Lawrence Springborg is keeping an open mind on nuclear waste issue.

The State Opposition Leader has been at a number of community meetings in Inglewood.

While he's come under fire for "dancing around the issue", Mr Springborg said he believed most people were comfortable with low-level waste.

While the outgoing Federal MP has been neutral on the issue, he vowed to make sure it didn't go ahead if the community was against it.

Mr Scott said the community should consider the impacts it may have on the region's farming.
