    PERTH, Nov 22 AAP - Western Australia would be stupid to prevent
    uranium mining and exports on ideological grounds, federal
    Treasurer Peter Costello says.

    "We're at the moment selling to countries like Japan, France,
    the Chinese are showing that they're interested, and I just can't
    understand why you would say we've got the stuff, we're already
    exporting it, (but) you're only allowed to export it from Roxby
