Senator DRURY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I address a question to the Minister representing the Minister for Shipping and Transport. Is it a fact that the Federal Government has not been able to come to a final decision on the construction of a standard gauge railway from Cockburn on the South Australian border to Broken Hill? Is the Minister aware that the continuing delay by the Government in reaching a decision on how and when to contribute to the standardisation of this line is causing grave concern in South Australia and also a growing belief that we may not see the completion of the project in the next decade? Will the Minister do all he can to have a final decision reached on this vital project so that the conversion of the Port Pirie to Broken Hill line can take place at the same time as the conversion of the Adelaide to Port Pirie line?
