Murray-Darling Basin Plan

10 Feb 2015 questionsarchive

A question to the Minister for the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, the Hon IK Hunter MLC, regarding Murray-Darling Basin Plan

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK ( 16:31 :07 ): I have a supplementary question arising from the minister's answer. Why has the government refused to support any further engineering works across South Australia's border—for instance, the Lake Albert interconnector?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER (Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Minister for Water and the River Murray, Minister for Climate Change) (16:31 :20 ): Mr President, that is not a supplementary at all.

Members interjecting:

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER: Rubbish!
