The Government will provide $310.0 million per annum from 2019‑20 to bridge any remaining gap between the level of water returned to the Murray‑Darling Basin under existing Water for the Future initiatives and the level required to be returned under the final Murray‑Darling Basin Plan.

Funding for this measure was included as a 'decision taken but not yet announced' in the Mid‑Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook 2012‑13.
