Senator DUNCAN (New South Wales) . - I have much pleasure in seconding this motion, and I congratulate Senator Foll on bringing it forward. To my mind the building of the proposed railway is of vital importance, not only to the States immediately concerned, but also to the whole of the people of Australia. I have seen the country that would be served by this line, and know what it is capable of producing, I have long felt that if Australia is to derive the greatest benefit from its development, a railway such as has been suggested by the honorable senator should be built. I should like to have another opportunity to into the matter as Senator Foil has done, and I ask leave to continue my remarks at a later date.

Leave granted; debate adjourned.

Sitting suspended from 12.57 to 2.30 p.m.
