South Eastern Water Conservation and Drainage Board

A question to the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation - South
Eastern Water Conservation and Drainage Board.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: I seek leave to make a brief explanation before directing
a question to the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation regarding the South
Eastern Water Conservation and Drainage Board.

Leave granted.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK: The South Eastern Water Conservation and Drainage Board
has many functions and obligations, including to provide effective and efficient management of water
and to assist and give advice regarding water conservation, drainage and management. The minister
appointed Mr Frank Brennan as the presiding member of the South Eastern Water Conservation and
Drainage Board in 2015. My question for the minister is: does he believe that conflict of interest exists
between chairing the South Eastern Water Conservation and Drainage Board and the South East
NRM Board?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER (Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation,
Minister for Water and the River Murray, Minister for Climate Change): No
