Xenophon to back water fight

first_imgSenator Nick Xenophon says he will support the South Australian government’s bid to protect SA’s water rights if it goes to the High Court, but the Senator wants to include irrigator protection. South Australian premier Jay Weatherill has made no secret that he will do all he can, including seeknig legan action, if less than 4000 gigalitres of water is returned to the Murray River in a revised plan yet to be released by the Murray-Darling Basin Authority.
