Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) . - As I stated recently, in reply to a question by Senator Grant, a council, consisting of the Commonwealth Railways Commissioner, and the Railways Commissioners for New South Wales and Queensland, has been created under the Act authorizing the construction of the Kyogle to South Brisbane Railway. The council has full authority to decide all questions in relation to that line. It, no doubt, took into consideration the representations which had been made on previous occasions with regard to tunnels, but it has decided that single line tunnels will be sufficient to meet the requirements of traffic. I shall bring Senator Grant's remarks under the notice of the Minister for Works and Railways, although I do not hold out any hope of any alteration being made in the plans for this line.
