Mr COUTTS (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - My question is addressed to the Treasurer. Recently a conference was held between this Government and the Government of Queensland concerning the reconstruction of the northern railway between Townsville and Mount Isa. because of the projected increase in the production of minerals for export in the north-west mining belt of that State. Will the Treasurer inform the House of the progress of these investigations, and the degree of assistance that the Commonwealth Government is prepared to give to the Queensland Government in this important developmental project?
