Mr MENZIES - The Commonwealth receives applications in relation to many State works. The honorable member refers to the possibility of establishing a steel industry in Western Australia. Of course, that is a matter of immense importance. The Government, consistently with its general policy, will endeavour to give priority of attention to those matters which are of the first constructive importance to the Australian nation. I would not have the honorable member believe that we are not well aware of some of the implications of the Western Australian project, but as he will be the first to realize, every project of that kind must be very closely examined, in order that its economic and national aspects may be determined. We are in fact proceeding to a very close examination of this matter.
