Mr Pasin said He take’s allegations of unconscionable conduct in the water market very seriously and The integrity of the Murray-Darling Basin water market is paramount, as is irrigator’s confidence in it.

Mr Pasin also said Growers need these matters investigated and resolved quickly and accordingly he’s pleased that Minister Littleproud has written to the ACCC asking that these serious allegations be investigated as soon as possible.
