Water Amendment (Water for the Environment Special Account) Bill 2012; In Committee
In referring to comments the minister made around the intention of the government to buy back or not water for the 450 gigs, he also said at the end of his comment 'or alternative arrangement'. That means: 'We are not going to do it for all these reasons, all these caveats, or we might seek it through alternative arrangements.' Can the minister provide us with some information on discussions with the states that may assist in clarifying what those alternative arrangements may be?
