REGINA - Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says the province needs a long-term strategy for water quality and supply.

Wall says that will be part of the second phase of the Saskatchewan Party's long-term vision, which is to be released this fall.

He says it's basically an economic plan, but will also look at issues such as health-care targets.

The premier is sitting down with his new cabinet for the first time since a major shuffle last week that saw only two ministers keep their portfolios.

Wall says they'll talk about the challenges of growth because he says the government's record isn't perfect.

He says cabinet will also talk about implementing promises from the election platform.
