Malcolm Turnbull yells "uncle"

Malcolm Turnbull has finally hit further investigation of NSW Northern Rivers water diversion options on the head.
The Oxley River is apparently safe from any interbasin water transfer, but thus far, nobody in the Clarence Valley appears to have received a firm assurance that the Clarence River system will be safe from water raiders if the Howard Government is returned after the Federal Election.
'The National Water Commission will not be progressing further work to investigate the options identified by the SMEC report "Integrated Water Supply Options for North East NSW and South East Queensland".' [Malcolm Turnbull,letter to Dr. Sue Page,9 October 2007].
