Senator MASON(5.40) —I had a letter from the Minister for Resources and Energy (Senator Gareth Evans) in, I think, the last few weeks in which, as I recall, he said to me that there would be a report on the Cobar matter in about mid-November. I had approached him to take a delegation of Cobar people to meet him. He was kind enough to say that he would receive them but asked that it be left until mid-November because he expected a report on the Cobar matter at that time. I remind the Minister that it is now just after mid-November. I ask him whether, indeed, this report has come to his attention, what are its contents, whether the Government has made a decision on it or whether he is prepared to say anything about it at this stage.
