Process Australian minerals in South Australia.

If we have cheaper electricity from nuclear power, surely we can process it cheaper here than in Japan, where the wages are higher.

And we sell the coal to generate their electricity.

Make home loan interest payments tax deductible, not only for investors.

That would give the young people a chance to get into the housing market, and it would regenerate the housing market.

Charge 20 per cent less tax to people living in regional areas.

Country towns, all of them in my electorate, would have better excess to a skilled workforce, for example, to get doctors out into the bush.

The Keith hospital is about to shut down because of a lack of doctors.

Invest the trillions of dollars tied up in superannuation here in Australian infrastructure such as the Bradfield Scheme.

The Murray needs a series of dams along it; that way the flow can be controlled.

At the outlet, have a pipe or several pipes and turbines and generate absolutely clean, cheap energy.

The biggest kick-back I seem to get is the surface water evaporation; all I can say to that is the water that does evaporate goes up in the atmosphere, becomes clouds and ends up as rain.

We need to think long-term with the river - we must implement a 10-year plan.

It was said the Suez Canal could not be built, but anything can be done with good planning!
