Labor ministers are anticipating a showdown at the national ALP conference this weekend.

Shadow Minister for the Environment Peter Garrett has said that he will tackle the Labor leader's motion to overturn Labor’s 25-year opposition to new uranium mines.

"It's clear that there's a strong feeling amongst Labor party members, particularly amongst the rank and file, and also frankly amongst the public, that they don't want to see a change in this policy," Garrett said.

Rudd, who has recently returned from his rendezvous in the United States, has said that he is looking forward to debate the issue with Garrett.
