Senator ALLAN MACDONALD (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister in charge of Development, upon notice -

1.   Has the Government received a lengthy and interesting communication from the President of the Senate (Senator Lynch) recommending a proposal to assist gold prospecting in Western Australia, by the creation of a fund, subscribed by the Federal and State Governments and the Western Australian mining companies, from which advances would be made to prospecting parties, to be repaid out of resultant gold finds?

2.   If so, would the Minister and the Government give early and favorable consideration to Senator Lynch's proposal, if it is considered that its effective working would give profitable employment to many experienced miners now excluded from deep mining on account of their health?
