Mr CLARK (DARLING, NEW SOUTH WALES) - In answer to a question recently, the Treasurer stated that £2,100,000 had been collected by the Commonwealth in the past three years, under the Commonwealth aid roads legislation, for expenditure on strategic roads and roads of access to Commonwealth property, but that only £1,400,000 had been expended, leaving a balance of £700,000. I ask the Treasurer: What has been done with that £700,000? Will he take action to see that it will be expended on roads, especially in view of the very bad condition of the roads throughout Australia?
