Water Amendment (Water for the Environment Special Account) Bill 2012; In Committee
I do appreciate that I was not able to be in the chamber earlier, Minister, but I am asking in relation to this particular amendment. In the event that the amendment is not successful, we are left with the wording as it currently stands and I just require from the minister for the chamber a simple yes or no answer. I do not want to hear that it is the intent of the government to do it; I want a simple yes or no from the minister as to whether he will unequivocally rule out any of the 450 gigalitres coming from buybacks in the future.
