Water Amendment (Water for the Environment Special Account) Bill 2012; In Committee
I refer to earlier comments Senator Farrell made about his desire for the legislation to protect communities. In that vein I want on the parliamentary record, as the shadow minister has requested, a guarantee that the government will not simply use the funds for the bill to expand or recommence a water recovery program.
The CHAIRMAN: The question is that Nationals amendment (1) on sheet 7335 be agreed to.
