Mr COPE (SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister a question. Following the savage increases in taxes on motorists in New South Wales, his Liberal Party colleague, Mr Morris, the New South Wales Minister for Transport, entirely blames the Commonwealth Government by stating:

The Commonwealth's attitude on roads money is typical of its attitude to the States. It generously looks after its own needs, sticks its bib into more and more State responsibility, then distributes the balance after satisfying its own needs to the Slates which have to provide all the basic community services.

Is what Mr Morris said factual?

Mr MCMAHON - I read only the first part of what Mr Morris said. I realised it was not a fact and abandoned reading the rest of it.
