Threat of Howard-Turnbull water raid still worries local government

"The dam diversion is still very much an issue, because I listened to the Prime Minister last week say that because the Queensland and NSW Governments didn't want to do it, it wouldn't happen. The reality is if John Howard is re-elected, he has the constitutional wear-with-all and a friendly senate until June next year, and he could make it happen," he said.
"We need the Prime Minister to come out and say 'there will never ever be a dam on the Clarence' - that's what we need."
