Mr HASLEM (Canberra) -by leave-I support the remarks of the honourable member for Fraser (Mr Fry) on the report of the Joint Committee on the Australian Capital Territory. The difficulty with waste disposal in a modern city is something which will come before all of us as Canberra grows. Waste disposal is a very expensive part of the municipal account. In a city such as Canberra, where there seems to be plenty of land, it would be very tempting for those of us who are responsible for the administration of the city and for those who will be responsible for the administration of the city as it is passed over to the local government area to take the cheap way out. This report will be very important to those people in local government as autonomy grows closer, as it indicates the options that are before them so that they can approach the matter in a responsible way. I associate myself with the words of praise of the honourable member for Fraser about all the staff involved in the preparation of the report.
