Walsh: Neville must stand up to SA Labor

Neville must stand up to SA Labor

Barnaby Joyce should be congratulated on his strong leadership today with regards to the 450GL upwater.

Lisa Neville must get her South Australian Labor colleagues to understand that this upwater cannot be achieved without causing massive socio-economic upheaval in Victoria’s Basin communities.

The 450GL deal secretly devised by former Labor Water Minister Tony Burke and South Australia’s Labor Government was not developed through the Basin Ministerial Council.

Barnaby Joyce’s actions today show real leadership to stand up for our irrigators and Lisa Neville should follow suit.
