The MDBRC said it had asked the government to release the ­report immediately after its  deliv­ery to the Attorney-General’s ­Depart­ment to meet the public interest in the matter.

Communities along the Barwon­-Darling river system have expressed concerns to Mr Daley that the release of the report would be delayed by the SA Government to spare the NSW Government further potential ­embarrassment over its handling of the Darling River and Menindee Lakes.
