Mr COLLARD (KALGOORLIE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Prime Minister. Has a decision been reached regarding the request from Western Australia for further financial assistance for the Ord River project? If so, will the Prime Minister make the decision known within the next few days so that, if the request has been agreed to, full advantage can be taken of the coming dry season? Can the right honorable gentleman explain to the House why it has taken so long to analyse last season's results if, as we were told previously, a very thorough examination was made of the economics of the whole project just prior to the Government's refusal of financial assistance last year?
