An independent MP says she understands the government will ‘‘welcome’’ her legislation introducing fuel efficiency standards for cars as it continues to negotiate on climate change targets to be introduced to Parliament next week.

Legislation for a 43 per cent emissions reduction target will be introduced to Parliament next week.

On Thursday Energy Minister Chris Bowen spoke again to members of the crossbench about their proposed additions to the bill.

North Sydney MP Kylea Tink told The New Daily that negotiations had been positive and already fruitful.

She said the government was now referring to its emissions target as a “floor”, one she expected initiatives such as a future bill on fuel efficiency standards to be added.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that the government is open to initiatives over and above which may not currently be calculated into that 43 per cent,” Ms Tink said.

“I am under the understanding that that private members’ bill, when we bring it forward, will be welcomed and it will be seen as a positive development in the overall framework.”
