I move:

That the Senate notes Fortescue Metals Group chairman, Mr Andrew 'Twiggy' Forrest's self-described 'ten-year aspirational challenge' to develop 5 000 gigalitres of water from existing aquifers in Australia to irrigate and drought proof farmland, as well as to open up thousands of hectares of land for new agricultural projects.

Question agreed to.
