Words have been exchanged between the SA Royal Commissioner and the Federal Water Minister.

Minister David Littleproud (pictured) wrote a letter, published on his website, explaining that the Murray Darling Basin Plan was legal and valid, however Commissioner Bret Walker SC says the letter contains highly contestable propositions of fact, law and a mix of fact and law.

Mr Walker says the Water Minister's behavior is "deplorable", calling the writing of the letter as highly irregular and inappropriate behavior.

Minister Littleproud has defended the letter saying it’s just a letter and not a submission to the commission looking into allegations of water theft and mismanagement under the plan.
