Mr GREGORY (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Home and Territories, upon notice -

Is it a fact that when the Cotter Dam was designed provision was made for sluice gates, and when being constructed openings for same were provided?

2.   Is is a fact that these openings were later filled with concrete, and that no provision for sluicing now exists?

Sir NEVILLE HOWSE - The design for the Cotter Dam did not make provision for sluice gates. Openings were temporarily left for constructional purposes only, and were later filled with concrete.
