Aussie floods create havoc during drought
Helen Dalton MP, Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party Member for Murray, joins Luke Grant to discuss her proposed bill for water registery.
Mrs Dalton asks “In what country in the world would floods be creating havoc during a drought? The one country where politicians and corporations can make millions from keeping water scarce, keeping prices high and keeping their water ownership secret.”
Her bill would:
1) Force NSW politicians to declare their water interests on our conflict of interest form.
2) Change the application process for getting a water licence so people can’t hide their identity when they apply for their licence
3) Change the online water register to allow people to search for water holdings of people and companies.
The Bill was introduced last week with the hope that it will be debated and voted on early next year.
