Mr BURY (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question, which is directed to the Prime Minister, concerns the re-construction of the Mount Isa to Townsville and Collinsville railways. In order that discussion on this matter should proceed on a more factual and less distorted and hypothetical basis, and in view also of the fact that the Australian taxpayer is to be called upon to bear a great part of the cost of construction, will the right honorable gentleman use his best endeavours with the Queensland Government to have published in full the Forde-Bacon-Davis report on the railway - its implications, costs and all other details? Since this report is informative and not very long, will the right honorable gentleman try to ensure that it is published without abbreviation and without any expurgation?
