Mr TURNBULL - My question is directed to the Minister for National Development. As the Minister has said that restrictions have had to be placed on the amount of water flowing down the Murray River because of the low level of water in the Hume Weir, and that the River Murray Commission preferred the provision of additional water storages to the building of weirs and locks, I ask: What prospect is there of filling additional storages in a dry year? Will the Minister recommend that the Commonwealth Government co-operate, both objectively and financially, with the States concerned in investigating means of overcoming the great loss of water between the storages and the areas of consumption?
