There is growing concern for the Federal Government’s $4 billion Water Infrastructure Scheme at the heart of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.
 
A Four Corners Report on Monday 8 July revealed that the scheme, intended to recover water by giving landowners money to build water-saving infrastructure, has had the adverse affect by helping big businesses expand irrigation.

Meanwhile pensioners are out of pocket because their 'deeming' rate has been influenced by interest rate cuts recently.

Rebekha Sharkie, Member for Mayo, joins Jennie Lenman to talk about the issues and what changes she is pushing for in Parliament.
