Mr Mahoney (DENISON, TASMANIA) y asked the Minister for Works, upon notice -

Will he furnish a list of Commonwealth works authorized by Parliament or determined on by the Government and not yet completed, specifying as to each: -

(a)   the nature of the work;

(b)   the site of the work;

(c)   the date of its authorization or of the determination made in respect of it; and

(d)   the reason why it has not been completed ?

Mr Thorby - To supply the details asked relating to all the 'works for the whole of the Commonwealth over a period of years would cause considerable delay in the work of the department which is working under pressure in view of the extensive and urgent programme being carried out. In addition, the cost would be more than could be justified. Particulars regarding any specified works could be supplied if requested.
