Shadow Minister for Trade


The Federal Leader of the National Party, Tim Fischer, today welcomed the announcement by the Prime Minister that his Government had adopted a proposal to undertake a national audit of Australia's water resources.

"This undertaking mirrors the National Water Audit I proposed at the annual conference of the National Party of Victoria, at Swan Hill on April 21 last year, and which I have strongly promoted at a variety of forums since then.

"The water audit has been part of the Coalition's policy thrust for many months.

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
