1. Given that the Territory has serious problems with Gamba Grass and Ngurra Burr, amongst other weeds and your government has stated many times that you are concerned about water management, why have you cut the budget in this area by $410 000.

There has been no decrease in the 2005 - 06 budget for water management.

There has been a $410 000 reduction in Natural Heritage Trust Commonwealth funding for natural resource management. The Northern Territory Government is not responsible for Commonwealth funding reductions.
