Senator FOLL (QUEENSLAND) . - I should like to know whether any report has been received by the Government from the North Australia Commission in connexion with developmental railways in Northern Australia. I understand that some months ago the commission undertook to report upon the future requirements of that portion of the Commonwealth, and the people of Queensland are anxious to know the result of the commission's investigations.

Senator Sir WILLIAMGLASGOW (Queensland, Minister for Defence) [5.12]. - To frame a report on communications in the Northern Territory, and after all, the great problem of the territory is communications, would occupy the North Australia Commission for a considerable time. The commissioners have a large area to cover, and I am not yet aware that any report has been received from them in connexion with their proposals for developmental railways.
