Dr Everingham asked the Minister for National Development the following question, upon notice:

What is the change in the projected price of water per acre foot to farmers as a result of the $ 12.8m grant to Queensland for the BurnettKolanIsis scheme.

Mr Swartz - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The price charged for water in State irrigation projects is essentially a matter for the appropriate State authorities. However, the Slate submission regarding the Bundaberg Irrigation Project set out the proposed water charges, and I understand that no changes are intended as a result of the Commonwealth grant to assist with this project.
