Murray Darling Association Conference to discuss Clarence water diversion

"Cr Tuckwell

Murray Darling Association

In January 2007 a motion was passed re setting up a National Authority to control the river in the Murray Darling basin.

Today in Dubbo that motion has now run its course and Minister Turnbull has come up with money to run a Conference in Dubbo which is happening now.

It appears the Federal Government is now interested in talking to the Murray Darling Association.

Another motion that was passed at the last meeting was to consider the Clarence River diversion. This has now been added for discussion on the agenda for the Conference being held in Bourke in September."
