For reasons that I have already pointed out in relation to the first of the Greens amendments, we will not be supporting it. I add to that that the predictions about drying out may or may not be correct, but I would never assert that they are fact. The last time I heard that was when Professor Tim Flannery told us the storages in South-East Queensland would never fill again, and since he said that we have had flood after flood after flood.

The CHAIRMAN: The question is that Greens amendments (7) and (10) to (16) on sheet 7314 be agreed to.
