Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I desire to ask the Minister representing the Minister of Home Affairs the following questions: -

1.   Has a contract been let for portion of the clearing and earthworks of the Kalgoorlie end of the trans- Australian railway line?

2.   To whom was the contract let, and what are its terms?

3.   Were tenders called for such contract, and in what newspapers, and for what length of time?

4.   Will the Minister lay a copy of the contract on the table of the Senate?

Senator McCOLL - I shall be glad to get the information, and lay a copy of it on the table of the Senate, if I find that the Department has no objection, and the honorable senator will give notice of a question.
