Mr JACOBI (Hawker) - There is one aspect of the Bill to which 1 draw the attention of the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Paragraph 4 (1.) of the schedule reads:

The Commonwealth will at its own expense erect along every boundary of the land over which the route of the railway lies a substantial fire resistant fence capable of preventing cattle, horses and sheep from entering within the said boundaries of the said land but shall not be liable to maintain or reconstruct any such fence.

Whose responsibility will it be to maintain or reconstruct the fence? Will it be that of the South Australian Railways Department, the Commonwealth Government or the private land owner?
