Senator RAE asked the Minister representing the Treasurer, upon notice -

1.   Is it true that the Ministry, at the recent Premiers' Conference, promised to aid in the locking of the Murray River by a contribution of £1,000,000?

2.   If so, under what conditions will the contribution be made, and what safeguards as to its proper expenditure will the Commonwealth provide?

3.   Is the payment to be provided for in the next Estimates, or will it be spread over a term of years?

4.   Is it intended to introduce legislation this session to give effect to the proposed grant?
