                Notice of Motion: Other Motion -

 

Hon. D.J. Hopgood to move - That this House notes the continuing community concern with the quality of water in the Murray/Darling system, in particular, with the volume of nutrients entering the rivers of the system from agricultural horticultural, dairying, industrial and domestic activities as evidenced by outbreaks of blue green algae; the House therefore urges the upstream States to follow South Australia's lead in drastically reducing nutrient intake particularly from sewage and asks that South Australia's representatives on the Murray/Darling Ministerial Council draw this motion to the attention of other members of the Council.

 

                                                                                                                         

 

                Present during the day - All the Members.
