Ms SHARKIE (Mayo) (12:44): I believe we must debate this motion urgently. My electorate is the end of the Murray, the most vulnerable part of the Murray, and there is so much concern in our state and in my electorate about this. We need to ensure that we have confidence in the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, and that the people of South Australia's confidence in the plan is returned. The actions in the Senate last night were nothing short of disgraceful, and my community is really, really concerned. I can't tell you how much fear we have. We remember when we were scrubbing the backs of turtles. I have farmers in my electorate too. Water is not just used for floating yachts in Goolwa, and yet that is what many members of the Nationals have said. It is outrageous. We need to ensure that this plan is delivered in full and on time, and we need the whole of this place to support this motion and to support the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

The SPEAKER: The question is the motion moved by the member for Kingston be disagreed to.
