Senator MARRIOTT (TASMANIA) - My question is addressed to the Minister representing the Minister for National Development. In view of the obvious increase in the bitumen sealing of roads in the Northern Territory because of this Government's programme for the rapid development of the Territory, will the Minister ask his colleague to approach the oil companies to find out whether any company or association of companies will establish a bitumen manufacturing plant in Darwin, which would mean a decrease in the cost of road construction and provide a valuable new industry in the Territory?
