Black lung to be probed by Qld committee

AAP logoAAP 15/09/2016

The re-emergence of the potentially deadly black lung disease in Queensland will be probed by a parliamentary committee.

The six-person committee will build upon what has already been learned about the disease from a Senate inquiry and independent review.

Black lung had thought to have been eradicated for decades before remerging in Queensland last year, with 15 confirmed cases including a retired miner who died.
