Senator IAN CAMPBELL (Minister for the Environment and Heritage) (12:04 PM) —My advice is that we did amend the bill in the House of Representatives, and that is now incorporated in this bill, and that is to seek to achieve that. It is referred to in clause 7(1)(ba) and it provides for the commission to also advise and make recommendations to COAG on any water matter of national significance. This makes it clear that the commission has a role in providing advice and recommendations to COAG.

Question negatived.
