Senator STEPHENS (11:03 AM) —I indicate that the Labor Party cannot support this amendment either but in broad terms we understand the intent and the principles behind it. We believe very strongly that encapsulated in this amendment are very important issues that need to be dealt with, as matters of great importance, by the National Water Commission in its practical work plans. It is unfortunate that we cannot support this amendment. We support the principles but not in this legislation.
