You can have smart alec answers, Senator Nash, but the reality is that we intend to restore the health of the Murray-Darling Basin. Buybacks have been part of that process, and once this legislation is through we will continue to achieve that goal. That is what we have set out to do, and those communities that you are concerned about, Senator McKenzie, will benefit by the passing of this legislation and the restoration to the health of the Murray-Darling and all of those communities within it.
