Mr ALLAN FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) r asked the Minister representing the Minister for National Development, upon notice -

When will payment be made to Crowe Brothers of Cobrabold, Adaminaby, for their property " Eagle Hawk " of 1,410 acres which was taken over by the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Authority in 1952?

Mr Fairhall - The Minister for National Development has furnished the following reply: -

The land in question was occupied by the Public Works Department as constructors of Adaminaby Dam in 1952 and is the site of the Adaminaby Dam and construction township. The land comprises part freehold and part Crown conditional lease. In December, 1952, the purchase price and the occupation fee effective from 3rd April, 1952, to date of settlement was agreed to by the vendors. Because of the nature of the title under which the land was held, extensive surveys and Crown land subdivision were necessary. Crown land subdivision was approved in March, 1956. Payment of the purchase price and the occupation fee by the authority has been awaiting action by the vendors' solicitors since May, 1956. Payment will be made immediately the vendors' solicitors complete their action.
