QUESTION: Murray-Darling Basin Plan

June 7th, 2018

On the 7th of June, Mark asked the Treasurer a question about the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

The Hon. M.C. PARNELL: My question is directed to the Treasurer in relation to Murray-Darling Basin funding.

Can the Treasurer advise if there have been any recent changes to the commonwealth government's Murray-Darling Basin funding arrangements that affect South Australia and, if so, how will these changes impact on the Murray-Darling Basin Plan related programs in South Australia?

Will it result in any cuts to programs or Public Service staff in the South Australian Department of Environment and Water?

The Hon. R.I. LUCAS (Treasurer): I think I need to take some advice from my ministerial colleague on that, and also perhaps seek advice from Treasury, but I suspect it is more likely to come from my ministerial colleague and I am happy to do that.
