My question is to the Minister for the Environment and Water. Is the minister aware that 80 per cent of water under the original Murray-Darling Basin Plan has already been returned to the environment, and, given the minister's pledge to recover the extra 470 gigalitres of that plan, will the minister honour the agreement with the states requiring a neutral or positive socioeconomic impact on regional communities to recover the water? If not, how will the minister take the water from farmers?
