Resolution reported.

Senator WONG (South Australia —Minister for Climate Change and Water) [10:54 PM] —I move:

That the report from the committee be adopted.

Senator MINCHIN (South Australia) [10:54 PM] —I move:

At the end of the motion, add:

                  but, due to the Government’s failure to support in the House the amendments made by the Senate, the Senate calls on the Government to immediately:

              (a)    prohibit construction of the North-South Pipeline and extraction of water from the Goulburn and Murray rivers for use in that pipeline;

              (b)    ensure that water saved through the Living Murray Initiative is immediately guaranteed and then released for environmental flows in the Goulburn and Murray Rivers and to replenish the Lower Lakes; and

              (c)    deliver $50 million in emergency relief funding to the Lower Lakes and Coorong communities.
