Minister, are you or the government aware of the water/land buybacks around Benjeroop, Stanhope and Carag Carag in Victoria and their effect on the communities socially, economically and environmentally? And are you able to explain to the chamber what will happen with the land that the state government has bought, now that the water has been stripped from those lands to return it to the environment? And what is the effect on these communities?
