Warragamba Dam Safety
WARRAGAMBA DAM SAFETY
Ms ALLAN: My question is directed to the Premier and Treasurer. Did the Minister for Planning write to the Premier on 13th January regarding critical safety concerns about Warragamba Dam? Did the Minister advise that further delay was risking $4 billion worth of damage in the Hawkesbury-Nepean valley and loss of life? Why, after two months, has the Premier failed to act?
Mr SPEAKER: Order! I call the honourable member for Illawarra to order. I call the honourable member for Kogarah to order.
Mr FAHEY: The issue of Warragamba Dam has been the subject of considerable discussion and research by Cabinet.
Mr SPEAKER: Order! I call the honourable
member for Ashfield to order.
Mr FAHEY: An announcement will be made on Warragamba Dam shortly.
