Labor must not support Basin Plan disallowance motion

5 Feb 2018 4:47 PM -
The Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA) has called on the Australian Labor Party to vote down any disallowance motion relating to the Murray Darling Basin Plan’s Northern Basin Review or the SDL adjustment.

“The opposition must resist the urge to support any disallowance motion relating to the Plan. Shadow Environment Minister Tony Burke championed the SDL adjustment as the best way he could address the extreme concerns about negative social and economic impacts resulting from the plan. Now is not the time to waver” RGA President Jeremy Morton said.
