Legislative Council: Thursday, February 09, 2023


River Murray Flood

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (15:16): Can the minister explain why the government picked the 15 November date, given that the Riverland had been subjected to high river flows prior to this and preparations by local farmers and producers were already underway?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (15:16): I will take that on notice. I have some recollections as to what the requirements were in terms of interaction with federal funding but I can't remember the details. I am happy to take that on notice and, as appropriate, refer to where that information can be found.
