Senator ALLISON (12:32 PM) —Are you saying that the National Water Commission will make an assessment of the national competition policy payments? I will go through my question again. The Western Australian government have raised the question of who decides about the national competition policy payments, recognising that this has been contentious. Their complaint is that there is nothing there that provides for the NWC to make recommendations to the Commonwealth on competition payments as part of its assessments. The question raised is: who will then decide from the assessments the implication for competition payments for 2005-06?
