Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) . - What is estimated to be the cost of this survey? ls the .£5,000 to be spent on the whole route from Pine Creek to the Katherine?

Senator McGregor - Certainly.

Senator CHATAWAY - But, roughly speaking, 30 miles of the 55 miles have already been surveyed by the South Australian Government'. Does the Federal Government intend to recover from the South Australian Government the cost of the survey that has already been made, or do they intend tq use the South Australian survey, or do they intend to pay twice over for the same work?

Senator McGregor - I will put the question before the Attorney-General, and get his opinion.

Senator CHATAWAY - Does the £5,000 simply cover the continuation pf the South Australian survey up to the Katherine? Surely that is a reasonable question to ask?
