Eyre Peninsula Desalination Project

The Hon. N.J. CENTOFANTI (Leader of the Opposition) (14:38): Supplementary:

1. Will the minister table the modelling and also the report that references the EP water security issues into the future?

2. Has she had any contact with Eyre Peninsula Seafoods about their concerns and will her government provide compensation if it's found out that the concerns of the industry were indeed correct and her government got it wrong?

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries) (14:38): I thank the member for her supplementary question. In answer to the first question, as I mentioned in my original answer the report is available on the SA Water website and I would again encourage interested stakeholders to look at that report. The second is a hypothetical, given that the modelling shows that there will not be a significant impact on the proposed Billy Lights Point site.
