Mr FAIRHALL - The question of road access to Tumut has recurred from time to time. On the last occasion that I looked at it, there was a prospect that the work on the Commonwealth section of the road would cost £800,000 or £850,000. I appreciate the importance of the road from the viewpoints of access and opening up new country, as well as the effect that it would have on the supply of foodstuffs to Canberra. The matter has been referred to also by my friend, the honorable member for Hume. [ shall have another look at it, but 1 do not think there is much hope at this stage that anything will be done quickly.
