Senator LYNCH (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Leader of the Government in the Senate, upon notice -

1.   Whether, in view of the probable establishment of an air-ship service from Great Britain to Australia, with Darwin as the first point of contact, the Government considers a narrowgauge railway a suitable type of connexion with such a service?

2.   If not, will the Government review its decision adopting the 3-ft. 6-in. gauge in the ease of the extensions about to be made to Daly Waters and Alice Springs?
