Mr MARWICK - Is the Minister for Supply and Development able to state whether a site has yet been selected in Western Australia for the establishment of a power alcohol distillery? If not, when will he be in a position to make the statement?

Mr BEASLEY - A decision has not been made in connexion with any of the sites. At this stage it would be undesirable to mention publicly the sites that are under consideration. Certain factor* have caused delay, which I regret. The honorable member must appreciate that within the last six weeks major problems have had to be decided which have taken up most of the time of Ministers. I hope to be able to make a decision within the next week.
