Mr HAROLD HOLT - I have not seen the report to which the honorable member has referred. I will be very interested to learn what my colleague has had to say on these important matters. The honorable member asks what the Government proposes in relation to its future policy on northern development, with particular reference to the Ord River area. We have already made patent our intention to press on with various national development projects. Some are currently in progress and the list has been added to from time to lime. We indicated earlier that at appropriate intervals, as information reached us, the Ord River project would be considered. I know that this project has been actively considered by my colleague, the Minister for National Development. When the Government is in a position to make a statement of policy on the matter, it will do so.
