Mr GARRETT (Minister for the Environment, Heritage and the Arts) (6:13 PM) —I move:

That Senate amendment (16) be agreed to, with the Government amendment:

(1)   Senate amendment (16) (heading to proposed new Schedule 4 to the Water Act 2007): Omit “the recognition of Indigenous water rights”, substitute “Indigenous representation on the Basin Community Committee”.

This amendment recognises that the Senate passed an amendment to the bill on 27 November to insert a new schedule in the Water Amendment Bill: schedule 4—amendments related to the recognition of Indigenous water rights. As a consequence, the title of schedule 4 does not reflect its substantive content, so an amendment is proposed to rename it ‘schedule 4—amendments relating to Indigenous representation on the basin community committee’.

Question agreed to.
