The Hon. J.S.L. DAWKINS(17:05:54): A supplementary question: would the minister concede that the Berri Barmera Council to which he referred might be reluctant to negotiate with the department on this matter, given the length of time they had to deal with the department over the transfer of the Berri Bowling Club land?

The Hon. I.K. HUNTER(Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation, Minister for Water and the River Murray, Minister for Climate Change)(17:06:09): What absolute nonsense, Mr President. The Berri Barmera Council was extremely happy with the transfer process. It now has access to and use of prime riverfront land and, in fact, it was done properly and not rushed through with a cowboy attitude, which the Hon. Mr Dawkins seems to suggest we should have taken.
